Computer Assisted Instruction: A Handbook for ESL Teachers.
Yuen, Steve Chi-Yin
This handbook for computer-assisted instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) is designed to guide teachers unfamiliar with computer hardware and software through the basic procedures of using the Apple IIe system and ESL software. The handbook begins with introductory sections on the growth of microcomputer use in schools, the advantages and disadvantages of computer use, and the variety of known uses of the computer. The components and care of the Apple IIe, the use and care of diskettes, and starting up the computer are described and illustrated. Brief notes are provided on running an ESL demonstration program, stopping a program, and initializing a diskette. Assistance in evaluating and selecting instructional software is provided through a list of nine instructional considerations, a brief list of sources of further information, and a software evaluation checklist. Additional materials included are a computer glossary, a list of organizations related to microcomputers and education, lists of related periodicals and software vendors, sources of public domain vendors, and an annotated list of ESL software available at the University of Southern Mississippi.
