Administrative Uses of Computers in the Elementary Schools.
Frequently administrators must spend time producing documents and reports, though theoretically they are supposed to use information to create better educational environments and experiences for students. By using the personal computer as a tool for tasks and analyses that, before the computer, used to take days, administrators will have time to utilize their higher order thinking skills--evaluation, conclusion, and application. The specific administrative areas that a computer can handle better than a person include ordinary typing tasks, student and personnel information processing, and financial recording and planning. Word processing programs and database programs will expedite these tasks. Listed are 10 programs, primarily ones that run on the Apple IIe or Apple IIc systems, and the sample tasks shown as part of the presentation. (MLF)
