Notebook on Computer Literacy Training. A Plan for Computer Literacy Training for School Personnel.
Mylona, Martha D.
This document is designed to assist educators, trainers, instructional designers, program planners, and Title VII program directors involved in the computer education of bilingual children. The presented information will assist in identifying target learner needs in the area of computer utilization and applications. The document describes an initial effort for computer literacy training directed towards the specific needs of a specific group of teachers and teacher assistants at the Silvia School Local Educational Agency (LEA) in Fall River, Massachusetts. The target population consisted of a group of learners who are elementary school teachers and teacher assistants involved in the teaching of bilingual (Portuguese/English) children. The methodology selected for instructional curriculum mapping for each unit of training is a combination of the procedural and hierarchical approaches. This was determined by the nature of the topics of the curriculum, which involved such domains of learning as verbal information, intellectual skills, motor skills, cognitive strategies, and implicit attitudes throughout the curriculum. A needs analysis was the first critical step in identifying the content to be addressed during the short-term computer literacy training. The document includes the following sections: Preface; Rationale; Front-End Analysis; Goals and Objectives; and Training Program Outline. Appendices include: Sample Needs Assessment Instruments, Courseware Evaluation Protocol, News Release, Certificate of Participation, and Sources and Resources. (THC)
