The objectives of this program developed by the Computer Literacy Planning Group of the District of Columbia Public Schools are to: (1) develop computer awareness among students, teachers, supervisors, and administrators; (2) develop and implement a computer literacy curriculum; (3) design and implement a computer training laboratory; (4) apply computer technology in the local school implementation of the competency-based curriculum through drill and practice, tutorials, problem solving, simulations, and other appropriate techniques; (5) apply computer technology in classroom management, including record keeping, and tracking and reporting of student progress; and (6) apply computer technology to local school management. Computer hardware and software will be acquired for each school, and training will be offered for instructional and management staffs. Individual chapters of this report focus on the areas identified by the group for study of programmatic and policy implications; where appropriate, recommendations and policy considerations are stated. These areas include goal, definition, desired learning outcomes, instructional computing, software, hardware, maintenance, existing programs, interactive technologies, computer training laboratory, job descriptions, and interaction with others.
