Designing and Implementing a Quality Computer Program.
Checklists and other materials to be used in planning and implementing computer literacy and computer skills programs in a kindergarten-to-eighth grade school system are presented in this packet, originally intended to supplement oral presentations. The materials were developed in California's Fallbrook Union Elementary School District in the course of the district's own planning and implementation process. The materials presented include a diagram of the structure of Fallbrook Union's computer literacy program and checklists of questions to be considered by planners concerning the superintendent's role, the board of education's role, the financial resources available, inservice training for teachers, evaluation of hardware and software, facility requirements, the role of a computer student planning committee, and program evaluation. Other materials include tables comparing the relative advantages of locating computers in classrooms or in special computer labs; a list of funding sources (particularly relevant to California); a curricular plan outlining the information and skills to be taught to students, the specific competencies students are to demonstrate, and the grade level at which the curricular elements are to be introduced, expanded upon, and reinforced; and a brief description of a computer inservice plan.
