An Administrator's Guide to Microcomputer Resources. Research & Development Series No. 239B.
Zahniser, Gale; And Others
This guide is designed to help educators sort through the vast amount of information that exists about the educational use of microcomputers. The first of five chapters takes the educational administrator through the decision process that is typically associated with choosing and adopting microcomputers for the school. For each point in this process, applicable resources are cited and reviewed. The chapter examines items such as hardware selection and purchase, software selection, computer literacy, teacher and staff inservice education, and potential applications. The second chapter contains a list of journals and periodicals dedicated to the use of the microcomputer and related technology in education. In the third chapter, a list provides organizations that have educational computing and related instructional technologies as a primary focus, while in the fourth chapter, commercial educational software vendors are listed. The final chapter contains an extensive annotated bibliography of literature related to microcomputers and vocational education. The annotated entries are grouped into seven categories and an explanation of the classifications is provided. (Especially useful to the vocational educator is a section devoted to examples of microcomputer use in vocational and technical schools.) (KC)
