Computer Use as a Tool in Vocational Preparation and Adult Basic Educational Curriculums.
Harmon, Marguerite; Frantz, Matthew
A 3-year project has helped deaf workers and students acquire basic computer operating skills. Local labor market aspects were assessed through an Index Rating System with 113 different employers and 279 job profiles. Research was conducted regarding academic achievement for the hearing impaired and adult basic education population. Specific curriculum components for the career awareness and computer literacy areas are described. The adult basic education program is also briefly reviewed. Evaluation data are summarized, and implications noted, including the prevalence of unrealistic educational expectations by employers. (CL)
