A Collaborative Computer Technology Project.
LeBlanc, Patrice; Zide, Michele Moran
The Computer Technology Project is a collaborative inservice/staff development project with a major goal of familiarizing school administrators, staff, and students with computers and their applications. The participating systems are Fitchburg State College, the Shirley Public School System, and the Lunenburg Public School System. The five-phase program extends over a three-year period and is funded by the Massachusetts Board of Regents of Higher Education. Year one, Phases I and II, involved the administration of pre- and posttests to all staff members in order to measure their knowledge, skills, and attitudes toward computers. Based on the analysis of pre-assessment data, levels of training were determined and implemented. Year two, Phases III and IV, involved implementing the project developed in the first year, including a basic computer literacy program for all students. The goal of the third year, Phase V, is the refinement of the computer management system and the expansion of software resources to meet the needs of low incidence groups. These groups include special education students in the mainstream and in the resource room, students identified as talented and gifted, and students from minority and multi-ethnic backgrounds. The document concludes with pre-posttest assessment forms for the first two years of the program. (Author/CB)
