Using Computers to Enhance Teaching And Improve Teacher Centers. A Report of the National Teachers Centers Computer Technology Conference.
Sadowski, Barbara R., Ed.; Lovett, Charles, Ed.
A conference of teacher center directors was held to explore the applications of computers to education. Three strands of the conference were presented: management, information systems and communications, and instruction. The papers given at the conference provide a primer for teachers and teacher center directors who are beginning to work with computers. The first four papers give a perspective on the computer in society today and in the future, with illustrations of specific uses of computers in educational settings. Other papers discuss how teacher center communications and management can be improved through the use of microcomputers and how computer-assisted or computer-managed instruction can be used in schools. Positive implications for teachers are also presented. Appendices provide a glossary and list educational computer resources and organizations. (FG)
