Microcomputer Assisted Instruction in Adult Basic Education.
Martin, Karen C.
This guidebook is intended to provide introductory knowledge to adult education teachers and administrators who are interested in the purchase and use of microcomputers. Although the emphasis is on adult basic education, most information is applicable to adult secondary settings. Section 1 is a brief history of computer development. Section 2, on hardware and software, covers basic component parts of a microcomputer, types of computer-assisted instruction, other educational uses, and selection of courseware packages and hardware for purchase. The way in which a microcomputer works is the topic of section 3. The final section discusses the need for computer awareness and computer literacy. An appendix provides listings of educational computing organizations, educational microcomputer newsletters, microcomputer magazines, book catalogs, information networks, educational publishing companies, microcomputer manufacturers, software review catalogs, software catalogs, and other resource materials.
