Adult Literacy & Technology: Guide to Literacy Software. 1989 Edition.
Adult Literacy and Technology Project, San Ramon, CA.
This second issue of an annotated listing of educational software suitable for use with adult basic education (ABE) students was compiled through reviews of software by ABE teachers and their students for its effectiveness and appropriateness to adult literacy instruction. The featured programs include drill and practice, simulations, educational games, word processing programs, and tutorials. The software is listed alphabetically by instructional category (English, life skills, mathematics, reading). The annotated remarks include descriptions and some perceived strengths and weaknesses of individual programs; information on publisher, price, type of computer on which the software runs, subject area, and level of use is also provided. An appendix to the guide is divided into three main categories: technical assistance (glossaries, hardware decisions, illustrated guide to the computer), listings of reviewed software; and resources, publisher addresses, and a comment form.
