Prescription for Computing Success: Knowledge and Self-Awareness.
Brown, Geraldine E.; Clark, Brenda
Intended for use by educators of handicapped individuals, this publication uses the form of an allegory to describe the process of learning to use computers, and provides guidelines for novices who want to utilize computers in the classroom. The need for self-awareness, initial planning, and acquisition of basic knowledge about computers is emphasized, and information is provided on user problems, educational software, programing, the process of teaching students to use computers, computerized instructional management, administrative use of computers, and use of telecommunications technology to link computers. For each topic covered, a definition, state-of-the-art information, and a list of problems--based in some cases on surveys of special educators--are presented. Also provided are descriptions of a visit to a computer store and a computer literature reading program, as well as information on the decision making process involved in the search for a suitable course on computer terminology and programing. A list of the personal and situational assessment factors involved in this decision making process and a sample chart illustrating rating of the important factors are presented. A 29-item bibliography is included. (ESR)
