Inservice Workshops on New and Emerging Agriculture/Natural Resources Occupation Instructional Materials. Final Report, January 1, 1980-June 30, 1981.
Leising, J.; Wilkins, Russell
This document contains the final report and appendixes from a project to develop resources for use by community college agricultural education instructors in better utilizing computer technology in instruction and to provide inservice workshops to make the instructors aware of available hard- and software. The four-page narrative lists objectives, activities, and conclusions. The major appendix is the product, Microcomputer Resource Guide for Agriculture. Developed to serve as an introductory text for microprocessors and software index for agricultural programs, the guide provides descriptive explanation of microcomputers and their related software. Hardware selection criteria are discussed. A computer program index file using the Agdex subject titles lists more than 100 application software programs for agriculture in these areas: field crops, horticulture, forestry/natural resource, animal science, soils, diseases and pests, agricultural engineering, and agricultural economics. Each program entry provides this information: subject/enterprise, computer level, language, cost, computer type, mode of transfer, program title and description, references, authors, and specific comments. Some appendixes contain lists of user groups and microcomputer manufacturers, references, and glossary. Other appendixes include workshop materials and evaluation instruments and results. (YLB)
