Computer Competencies for Reading Teachers.
Neufeld, Karen
Intended for teachers seeking computer training or persons responsible for such training, this paper presents a list of computer competencies for reading teachers. The first section of the paper lists the beginning level competencies, which require very little computer knowledge and are sufficient for using instructional software in reading classrooms. The competencies listed include running, stopping, and restarting a computer program, and planning reading lessons that include computer use for instruction. The second part of the paper lists the intermediate competencies, which require slightly more knowledge and are needed to create and retrieve computer files for customized lessons and clerical help. The list includes using instructional computer programs that require teacher-entered, saved, and retrieved files, and using computer software to print out instructional materials. The last part of the paper lists the advanced level competencies, which require more extensive computer training or self-study and are necessary to create original computer programs or teach programing to students as a reading activity. This list includes using an authoring system to create original computer instruction and assessment programs, and creating simple programs in the BASIC programing language. (HTH)
