Students at Risk: How Computers and Software Can Help.
Mindscape, Inc., Northbrook, IL.
This brochure describes computer software available from Mindscape that is designed for use with at-risk students, i.e., those who have dropped out of school or those who are potential dropouts. An overview of the problem and school- and community-based programs responding to the problem is provided, and use of Mindscape computer software by several such programs is described. Tips for using computer software programs with this group of students are also provided, and it is noted that at-risk students need programs that provide positive reinforcement, and that they prefer student directed programs which provide frequent interaction with the computer. A list of Mindscape products for at-risk students is included. (Author/EW)
