Hawley, David E.
OSSC Bulletin, v27 n5 Jan 1984
This bulletin provides a discussion of the impact of microcomputer technology and functions as a guide for administrators. It examines issues administrators must address if they are to take an active role in implementing computer programs in their schools. Chapter 2 examines hardware evaluation and selection, giving recommendations on types of computers available on the educational market. Chapter 3, considering the learning environment, details specific precautions and provisions that must be made when incorporating computer equipment into the classroom. Chapter 4 outlines computer courseware--describing resources listing available software--and includes sample evaluation sheets. Chapter 5 discusses computers in the curriculum in three areas of application: computer fundamentals, computer science, and computer-assisted instruction. The final chapter outlines implementation of computer programs in schools, and discusses maintenance of equipment, funding, staff education, and planning. Included are five appendixes of resource listings and lists of reference and interview annotations. (MD)
