Booting Up: A Computer-Assisted Bibliography. An Annotated List of Educational Computer Software for Youth and Adult Literacy Programs.
This guide is a selected list of 25 software packages and 15 books about educational computing. It is the first step in guiding librarians, teachers, tutors, and other literacy providers to choose the best and most appropriate software for use by their students and staff. Software is divided by these topics: problem-solving software, tool programs or multiuse programs to help solve real problems (word processing programs and filing/data base programs), and reading/language arts programs (drill and practice or tutorial programs in the areas of communication arts). For each software package this information is provided: title, source and address, cost, and a brief annotation. Two lists of suggested instructional computing books are provided: general books about computers and education and books on LOGO programming. (YLB)
