The Computer Coordinator.
Moursund, David
This book discusses computer coordinator responsibilities and suggests necessary qualifications. The need for computer coordinators is discussed and responsibilities of a building-level computer coordinator are identified to help distinguish this position from that of a computer teacher. A more detailed analysis of the types of activities that might involve a computer coordinator provides an overview of computers in instruction and discussions of the computer coordinator as a computer scientist, a learning specialist, and as a computer-integrated instruction specialist. A summary of computer coordinator responsibilities and planning and implementation is included, as well as a categorization of possible qualifications for a coordinator; a list of technical qualifications for a masters degree in computer education; discussion of the nature of many computer coordinator positions and how these are filled; an examination of some of the problems currently faced by computer coordinators; an analysis of the importance of educational goals in relation to educational computing; and interviews with six computer coordinators. Five references and two periodicals are listed, and two editorial reprints from The Computing Teacher are provided: "The Two Percent Solution" (edited) and "Back to Basics." (LMM)
