A Program for Educating Future Teachers in Methods of Integrating Computer Use into Their Classroom Resources.
Lee, Helen C.
Suggestions are presented for planning, presenting, and following up workshops for teachers who are learning to use a microcomputer in their classroom. The following points are made: (1) Teachers should be involved in planning the workshop; (2) Hands-on demonstrations of computer use with students in the presence of teachers should be conducted before asking teachers to work on computers; (3) Workshops should be conducted in a comfortable place with good sight-lines; (4) If possible, participants should be shown the inside of the computer and how it works; (5) Female as well as male teachers should be encouraged to participate actively in the presentation; (6) Both hands-on experience and a professionally useful product should be provided for teachers; (7) Administrators should be encouraged to place the computer where teachers can experiment with it during the school day when they have free time; (8) Software appropriate to various subject areas and grade levels should be demonstrated; (9) Examples should be given of how to integrate computer use into existing classroom practices at all grade levels and in all subject areas; (10) Print materials on educational microcomputing should be displayed prominently in the school; and (11) All questions should be answered, making questioners feel issues they raise are important.
