A User's Guide to Project BEST Products: Print and Nonprint.
Ingle, Henry T.; And Others
This notebook accompanies a videotape series produced by Project BEST (Basic Education Skills through Technology), a federally funded cooperative effort involving federal, state, and local governments and the private sector in planning and using information technologies to improve basic skills instruction. Intended for state and local personnel using or planning to use information technology in schools, the materials are resource supplements for state and local staff development programs. Separate sections address the three major types of Project BEST print and nonprint products. The videotape module guides section briefly describes the four 30-minute videotapes, which depict school-level experiences in introducing microcomputers into the educational system. A discussion leader's guide for each module highlights its objectives and offers suggestions for organized viewing and discussion. The second section presents profiles of each school district shown in the videotape modules and provides an overview of the district's experiences in introducing microcomputers in the schools, the name of a district contact, and a list of available written materials about the district's technology activities. Finally, materials on Project BEST teleconferences and videotape newsletters are provided, including supporting documents and suggestions on how to use the materials in staff training. (LMM)
