This guide is designed to help home economics teachers in Illinois to become more informed about computers and how they can be used in the classroom. The guide consists of six sections. The first two sections discuss educational uses of computers and factors to consider in selecting a computer for vocational and practical arts education. The third section is an educational software evaluation form that teachers can use to rate proposed software according to instructional purpose, contents, features, documentation, and other considerations. A glossary of computer-related terms comprises the fourth section of the guide, while sources of home economics-related computer software, such as catalogs and bibliographies, are listed in the fifth section. The final section of the guide lists computer software for home economics. For each title, information is given on distributor, program content, model of computer on which the software can be used, and the price of the program. (KC)
