Technology in the Curriculum. Resource Guide 1988 Update. A Guide to the Instructional Use of Computers and Video in K-12.
This resource guide lists 47 computer software and 29 instructional video programs recommended for use in grades K through 12 to help teachers achieve the learning objectives set forth by their school districts and the State of California. Programs are organized in six curriculum areas: foreign language, history-social science, language arts, mathematics, science, and visual and performing arts. Most entries for software list the source, rating, grade level, focus, description/major objectives, program type (word processing, simulation, creative tool, etc.), support materials, equipment, price, copyright date, teacher preparation time/ease of use, implementation ideas, and classroom setting. Most instructional video entries list the producer, rating, grade level, length, copyright date, focus, description/major objectives, evaluation, support materials, and implementation ideas. Some entries for both types of media also list relevant objectives from the California curriculum under the following headings: setting/course, objectives, critical thinking (clarifying issues, judging/using information, and drawing conclusions), study/basic skills, values/beliefs, and social skills. A directory of publishers/producers and an alphabetical list of programs are included. This update is designed as a supplement to the original guides and the 1987 updates. (MES)
