Survey and Analysis of Technology in the Great Cities.
Hamilton, Patricia; Casserly, Michael D.
This survey describes the range of computer technology that the Great City Schools are now using for administrative and instructional purposes. The report looks at how city school systems are now planning to install computers; how they are managing the planning, the purchasing, and evaluation of equipment; what equipment is actually being purchased and with what criteria; which courseware is being used to operate the systems; who is being trained to use the equipment and for what reasons; what computer languages are being taught; and how all of this is being maintained and financed. In addition, the report considers how the school systems are attempting to avoid racial and gender bias in computer software. Following the summary, 29 detailed descriptions by district are provided.
