This report details the Hawaii State Department of Education's plan for the use of computers and computer-related technologies in instruction and instructional support. Four areas of implementation are identified: (1) computer literacy, which includes exploratory computer literacy, computer science, and vocational-technical education; (2) computer-assisted instruction; (3) computer-based information retrieval; and (4) computer-managed instruction. Descriptions of both current and emerging uses of computer technology in the Computers in Instruction Program are provided in this plan, along with goals and directions for each of the four areas of implementation and the three components of computer literacy. The text is supplemented with a glossary and nine appendices which make up more than two-thirds of the document. They include: information on program developments; equipment acquisition guidelines; educational specifications for a computer resource room; educational specifications for a career resource center; a framework for exploratory computer literacy for grades K-12; a secondary task force report; a rationale and specifications for computer-based information retrieval in school libraries; criteria for reviewing the effectiveness of computer-managed instruction; and a model for inservice training in computer literacy for teachers. A 20-item reference list for the plan and a 16-item bibliography for the inservice training model are provided. (EW)
