Sharing the Vision, Power, and Experience: Increasing the Technology Competence of Administrators.
Beaver, J. F.
Developing long-range plans that support educational computing programs requires leaders that understand the problems and promises of instructional computing. If administrators are expected to provide the vision needed to guide program development, they must first be encouraged to increase their computer competence. A course on administrative uses of computers that provides opportunities for mastering productivity applications and for planning instructional computing program development can give administrators the necessary competence to understand the kind of training and support that teachers need to help them master the machines. The paper concludes with a brief description of a recommended course. (8 references) (EJS)
