Using a Statewide Microcomputer Educational Network to Enhance Teacher Education.
Hobar, Nicholas
A description is given of the West Virginia Microcomputer Educational Network in the context of excellence in education and how it enables educators in schools, colleges/universities, and the State Department of Education to access and input to an information base of research findings, successful practices, and operational programs related to curriculum, evaluation, instruction, and teacher training, including adaptations for exceptional students. The master plan calls for the development and implementation of public school curriculum and teacher education programs based upon learning outcomes. The network provides educators with free state licensed software for word processing, electronic spreadsheets, data base management, and interactive authoring in addition to approxiately 2,000 public domain software packages. A key feature of the network is the capacity of communications between the various sites within the network. The network has the capacity to disseminate public school educational programs, teacher education programs, and training materials to every teacher and teacher educator in the state. (JD)
