Computer Literacy Development. A Project Report.
Kapp, Ann B.; Knickerbocker, Addie H.
The Computer Literacy Development Project in Research and Training in Vocational Education was a multi-phased project designed to determine the feasibility of changing the attitudes of vocational educators toward the use of computers, to identify the classroom and administrative applications of microcomputers, to determine the applications of microcomputers in vocational programs in other states, and to develop and implement a computer literacy workshop for vocational educators. After reviewing available literature and analyzing survey data detailing the responses of 45 state directors of vocational education concerning the vocational classroom and administrative use of microcomputers in their respective states, the researchers developed and presented a teacher workshop at Northeast Louisiana University in Monroe, Louisiana. Included among the topics addressed during the workshop were the following: using and caring for computers, word processing, telecomputing, developing and using test banks, BASIC programming, and developing and implementing a database management system. (Appendixes to this report include the workshop materials; an annotated bibliography that covers such topics as children and computers, computer literacy, legal issues, software and hardware selection, and the use of telecomputing; the project survey instrument; and selected references from the project literature review.)
