Computer Literacy In-Service Training Program.
Bear, George; And Others
This 16-hour course was designed to teach the minimum computer literacy objectives set forth by a mandate from the Virginia Board of Education. The course also prepares teachers to use the word processor. The inservice package is comprised of five units: (1) introduction to the computer; (2) computer-assisted instruction; (3) computer programming (LOGO or BASIC); (4) word processing; and (5) computers in society. Equipment and materials required include the Apple II+, IIe, or IIc computer systems. Specific software needed is listed at the beginning of each unit. Each unit is written so that a large percentage of the work can be completed as a self-paced independent study package. It is recommended, however, that as much of the program as feasible be completed in a group situation with a computer coordinator or group leader available to assist participants. It is also recommended that unit activities be completed in pairs, two participants per computer. (JD)
