New and Promising: Software Worth a Look. A MicroSIFT Survey of Educational Software Preview Center Coordinators. Volume II, No. 1.
This guide lists 21 software packages considered to be worthy of further consideration by other reviewing agencies and schools by a group of 12 computer coordinators from educational software preview centers and evaluation agencies. These software products have been selected as not being likely to appear in the reviews produced by major software evaluation agencies. Included are reviews of courseware for applications in biology, civics, geography, geology, history, language arts, mathematics, music, physics, problem solving, and writing. The types of programs include simulations, use of computer tools (e.g., Hyperscreen), word processing, tutorials, databases, and games. In addition to a brief description of the software package, each entry includes information on: (1) the publisher; (2) the suggested grade level(s); (3) topics addressed; (4) hardware requirements; and (5) price. A list of software producers' addresses and telephone numbers is also provided. (GL)
