Micro-Ideas, Glenview, IL.
Fifty-five papers focusing on the role of computer technology in education at all levels are included in the proceedings of this conference, which was designed to model effective and appropriate uses of the computer as an extension of the teacher-based instructional system. The use of the computer as a tool was emphasized, and the word processor was the tool of interest for this year's meeting. Microcomputers and their applications in teaching mathematics, science, music, drafting, writing skills, graphic arts, and physical education are discussed, as well as such topics as library resource sharing, tessellations, robotics, word processing, networking, keyboarding, and the electronic spreadsheet. Additional papers describe the use of microcomputers to evaluate tests, computer use in education in the USSR, the production of a school newspaper with microcomputers, utilization of demographic data, library classification and cataloging updates of computer related terms, artificial intelligence in education, direct satellite television programming, and computerizing the discipline and attendance offices. A list of figures and a subject/author index are provided. (CGD)
