Strategy and Implementation Paper.
Scottish Microelectronics Development Programme, Glasgow.
This report describes the progress and plans of the Scottish Microelectronics Development Programme (SMDP), which was created to stimulate the development of microcomputer software and the use of microcomputers in both curriculum and management through the loan of hardware to a selected group of projects based in schools and colleges. Included are brief descriptions of Phase 1 (1979-1980), which provided support for 68 projects and established a national hardware and software center at the SMDP base in Glasgow, and Phase 2, which emphasizes the development of educational software; a calendar of implementation to March 1981; a listing of staff and advisors; the 10 program objectives; 18 strategy statements and four operational statements; and an overview of completed, current, and proposed implementation of each of the 18 strategies with references to the projects associated with each. Appended materials contain a description of the SMDP information service; a tabular listing including the institution, project leader, microcomputer system, and subject areas of each of the 68 projects; reports on the Schools Computer Administration and Management Project (SCAMP) and the Scottish Community Education Microelectronics Project (SCEMP); and overviews of the monitoring and evaluation of projects and the programmer's involvement with working groups.
