Essential Computer Competencies for Educators.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This publication outlines a set of competencies for all public school educators and is designed to guide the development of computer study based on specific objectives. The order for teaching the competencies is left to the discretion of the inservice or preservice teacher, and they may be taught in independent courses or incorporated into existing courses. Focus is on the teacher's educational role rather than administrative applications. It is noted that the individual competencies included, while stated briefly, may require weeks or months of time-on-task to acquire. A rationale and specific objectives are listed for the following topics: educational applications, implementation, attitudes, software, programming, hardware, computers in society, general applications, information resources, and future trends. An appendix lists five references. (LMM)
