Franklin, Sharon, Ed.; Strudler, Neal, Ed.
The purpose of this notebook is to assist educators who are designing and implementing inservice education programs to facilitate the effective use of computer integrated instruction (CII) in schools. It is divided into the following five sections: (1) Effective Inservice (a brief summary of inservice literature focused on inservice dimensions and design principles); (2) Background Information (an overview of computers in education and a discussion of the roles of computers in problem solving); (3) Initiating/Planning an Inservice (suggestions for preliminary planning and activities and a sample timeline for those activities); (4) An Eight-Session Social Studies Inservice (2-hour sessions cover an introduction to databases, database management systems, making your own database, an introduction to computer simulations, another simulation, teacher productivity tools, graphing to represent data, and problem solving, telecommunications, and closure); and (5) Instruments and Evaluation (a variety of instruments for needs assessment, formative evaluation, and summative evaluation). Each 2-hour science inservice session contains some or all of the following: narrative overview, script (topics, objectives, materials, activities), timeline, handouts, and readings. References are listed throughout the notebook and a software bibliography is included in section 4. (DB)
