Educational Computing in New Jersey: A Resource Guide. PTM 400.06.
Smorodin, Ted; And Others
This guide is designed to help both novices and "sophisticates" in educational computing to gather the information and materials they need to plan, implement, and evaluate computer-based school programs. Starting with a glossary of technical terms and ending with an extensive bibliography, the guide gives information about the major periodicals in the field, lists a number of evaluation tools for both software and hardware, and provides information about the state contract vendors of microcomputing equipment and supplies. Other sections list the names and addresses of resource people in the state, including county, regional, and central office staff; user groups; school district cooperatives; institutions that offer inservice training; and suggested course outlines for those districts that prefer to conduct their own inservice programs. Another major section contains the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all major--and many minor--producers of microcomputing equipment and supplies; the current listing contains almost 200 manufacturers. Designed to serve as a "Yellow Pages" for educators looking for information about microcomputing in school settings, this guide will be kept up to date by the publication of changes in NewsCLIPS, the newsletter of the New Jersey Educational Technology Unit. Additions and changes solicited from the users of the guide will be published in the same manner. (JB)
