Computers in Bilingual Education: New Directions in Bilingual Teacher Training.
Milk, Robert D.; Mendiola-Burgess, Sandra
This paper discusses issues related to the introduction of computer uses for bilingual education into bilingual teacher education programs, including equity with mainstream education programs, the functions for which computers are used in the schools, differential student access to resources in the home, and preservice teacher computer anxiety. A successful Title VII program that developed and incorporated computer applications as a major program component within the bilingual teacher training sequence is described. Evaluation data are discussed in the context of the question of how to provide adequate coverage of the full range of competencies needed by bilingual teachers within the time constraints of conventional teacher education programs.
