Microcomputers in Today's Schools: An Administrators' Handbook.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This handbook contains journal articles, reports, and documents collected for the purpose of providing school administrators with current information on computer applications in public schools. The first part of the handbook includes reports on computer oriented programs in the schools of Alaska and Oregon, procedures for assessing computer needs, recommendations for evaluating and purchasing computer hardware, and some model applications of computers for teaching the handicapped and/or in basic skills programs. The second part provides profiles of schools and school districts currently using microcomputers as part of their instructional program. Each profile presents a description of a specific computer project, including hardware, software, personnel, costs and a contact person and phone number for arranging on-site visits. Additional sources of information on computer applications in educational settings are identified in bibliographies accompanying many of the reports and in a resource list at the end of the handbook.
