Microcomputers in Public Schools: Albany, Schenectady and Saratoga Counties of New York State.
Terzian, Peter J.
A questionnaire was distributed to 31 public school districts in the counties of Albany, Schenectady, and Saratoga in New York State to determine the extent of microcomputer utilization, as well as attitudes surrounding their use. The survey yielded a 29 percent return. The responding schools indicated that the predominant use is in math for grades 3-12, with the accent on programming in the 11th and 12th grades; software is purchased, except where students are learning programming or in chemistry where students and teachers are doing the programming; in some cases the microcomputers need to be made more accessible to a greater number of students; administrators' attitudes toward microcomputers are generally favorable; and teachers' responses ranged from "just a tool" to"impressed." Eight references are listed. (LLS)
