1981 Ohio Regional Conferences on Mathematics Education: Microcomputers in Education.
Pikaart, Len; And Others
Six regional conferences designed to provide educational decision-makers and teacher-leaders with a state-of-the-art review of the possibilities, limitations, and recent technology of microcomputers in an educational perspective were held in 1981. The purposes of the conferences were to: (1) stimulate realistic and effective approaches to using microcomputers in middle, junior high, and secondary schools; (2) provide hands-on experiences and demonstrations of microcomputers; (3) indicate the range of software available; (4) provide summaries of microcomputer research and project results; (5) distribute criteria helpful for selecting both hardware and software; and (6) maintain cooperative linkages between local school personnel and other mathematics educators. The majority of this document consists of materials distributed to conference participants. These materials were either developed by the project staff or written by others and reprinted with permission. (MP)
