A Soft Sell for Hardware: The Use of Microcomputer Technology for Cost Effective Special Education Management.
Miller, Rosemary; Ragghianti, Suzanne
The role of the computer as manager of instruction in special education is discussed. In Part 1, basic computer terms are introduced under the major headings of data measurement, hardware, and software. Part 2 focuses on selection criteria for microcomputers. Suggestions for evaluating software are given in terms of ease of use, documentation, dealer support, and flexibility. Considerations for hardware selection are explained to center on capacity, storage, input/output, and service. Aspects of matching the existing data collection procedures with computerization are addressed, and sample files for recordkeeping are described. (CL)
