Planning for Computers in Education: A Resource Handbook. Revised.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR. Computer Technology Program.
This handbook is designed for use by educators, parents, and computer professionals who can utilize it for special assistance; for locating appropriate, relatively inexpensive, quality materials; and for developing an awareness of the broad spectrum of tasks that are essential to the effective use of computers in schools. The first seven chapters deal with relevant, specific topics: (1) technology program development; (2) curriculum development; (3) staff development; (4) software selection; (5) hardware selection; (6) computer facilities planning; and (7) budgets and funding. Each chapter first presents an overview of the topic, then a checklist, and is followed by an extensive list of resources. Chapter 8 focuses on resources for professional support and expands the previous lists of resource materials by topic area with a selected guide to national organizations, technical organizations, state level educational technology specialists, and periodicals. The handbook concludes with a glossary of computer terms and a subject index. (CGD)
