This handbook is the second in a series of five competency-based resource guides on microcomputer applications for vocational teachers. The seven units of instruction in this handbook are concerned with the content of the eight competencies included in the category, "Integrating Competency-Based Instruction into Vocational Education." Units are designed to prepare the teacher to do the following: (1) include job-specific applications of microcomputers in vocational curricula, (2) identify educational applications of microcomputers for inclusion in vocational curricula, (3) develop a plan to apply computer-based instruction to vocational curricula, (4) demonstrate an awareness of microcomputer software for developing computer-based vocational curricula, (5) write specifications for hardware and software based upon vocational curricula requirements, (6) implement a plan to apply computer-based instruction to vocational curricula, and (7) evaluate and modify applications of computer-based instruction to vocational curricula based on innovations in computer technology and work. Components of each unit include unit and specific objectives, informative material, sample forms and evaluation measures, examples, a summary, achievement indicators, and a list of references. (YLB)
