Introduction to Computers for Home Economics Teachers.
Thompson, Cecelia; And Others
Written in simple language and designed in a large-print format, this short guide is aimed at teaching home economics teachers to use computers in their classrooms. The guide is organized in six sections. The first section covers the basics of computer equipment and explains how computers work while the second section outlines how to use computers, including the disk operating system and the disk drive. The third section provides information on caring for computers, including general care and maintenance, handling the diskette, troubleshooting, and classroom security. In the fourth section, various teacher uses for computers are reviewed, such as computer programs for word processing, teacher planning, computer-aided instruction, evaluation and grade reports, building a software collection, creating software, and the BASIC programming language. The fifth section applies computer use to the home economics classroom and suggests content area applications for the various fields of home economics. The final section is a glossary of computer terminology. (KC)
