Integrated Literacy Development and Computer-Based Instruction.
Roos, Marie C.
Noting that recent developments in computer technology facilitate the integration of media in literacy development, this paper reviews 18 items of courseware designed to promote literacy development within a whole language framework. The reviews are divided into four sections dealing with the following topics: (1) idea processors and the contributions of graphic organizers to information processing in the content areas; (2) media integration systems and the capacity to synthesize interdisciplinary content; (3) desktop publishing as a vehicle for producing sophisticated report formats; and (4) courseware in reading and literature designed to promote integrated literacy development. The paper concludes that these programs are useful both across the curriculum to facilitate information processing and in conjunction with thematic, literature-based, or content area units of study to enhance higher-order thinking. (Thirteen references are attached.) (RS)
