The cost and timesaving advantages of a microcomputer purchase are discussed, as well as the instructional advantages, and the various types of teaching strategies used with a computer are explained. The paper also includes a discussion of hardware selection criteria, software selection sources, and organizations which can provide the novice computer user with helpful information. (LLS)
