District Computer Concerns: Checklist for Monitoring Instructional Use of Computers.
Designed to assist those involved with planning, organizing, and implementing computer use in schools, this checklist can be applied to: (1) assess the present state of instructional computer use in the district; (2) assist with the development of plans or guidelines for computer use; (3) support a start-up phase; and (4) monitor the implementation or progress of an on-going program. Based on the need for coherency, rationality, and coordination between buildings and districts, the guidelines are designed from the district point of view. The main areas of assessment include: methods of computer use (computer assisted instruction, software application, programming); hardware and software currently in use; funding sources; computer brands being utilized; availability and types of teacher inservice training; equity in computer access; district computer planning activities and guidelines; and problems and impediments to successful computer implementation and development.
