Statewide Computer Literacy Study. Final Report (and) Appendix.
Systems for Training and Applied Research, Inc., Lexington, KY.
This final report of a statewide computer literacy study for the state of Alaska is divided into several sections. A general introduction provides the history of the project and an outline of its three stages: (1) a national review of the status of computer literacy through a computerized literature search; (2) a telephone survey of representatives of Alaskan school districts and documentation collection from the State Department of Education to determine the status of computer literacy in Alaska; and (3) a 3-day computer literacy workshop for representatives of the educational and industrial sectors. The workshop participants were divided into two major planning groups--one to develop definitions and objectives for citizen computer literacy for the state, and the other to develop definitions and objectives for vocational computer literacy. Sections II-IV of the report provide an in-depth analysis of each of these three phases. In addition, data collected through the telephone survey, a summary of the results, and three conclusions are reported for the second stage of the study. The report of the citizen literacy group is contained in Section III and the report of the vocational computer literacy group in Section IV; Section V presents a summary of the recommendations of both groups. A separately bound appendix contains two keynote addresses, a seven-page selected bibliography, a report of a 1982 school survey, a planning conference participant list, and the agenda for the Alaska Statewide Computer Literacy Planning Conference.
