Basic computer terminology is defined, and software evaluation instruments are provided from the Educational Products Information Exchange Institute (EPIE) and the Microcomputer Software and Information for Teachers (MicroSIFT) project. An article entitled "Computing Competencies for School Teachers," by Jim Poirot, Robert Taylor, and Jim Powell, discusses three sets of teacher competencies: universal computing competencies, competencies needed by teachers of computing, and additional subject-specific computing competencies. Thirty-nine references are listed. Individual reports describe educational computer programs in the following school districts: North Little Rock Public Schools, Arkansas; Humphreys County School System, Mississippi; Jackson Public Schools, Mississippi; Bloomfield Municipal Schools, New Mexico; Putnam City Schools, Oklahoma; and Dallas Independent School District, Texas. A regional sampler includes reports from state education agencies by Sara Murphy, Arkansas; Sue Wilson, Louisiana; Gary Green, Oklahoma; and Gary Haseloff, Texas.
