Computer-Based Education: The Best of ERIC, 1989.
This collection is designed for use by educators who need to make decisions about the use of microcomputers in schools, or who want to keep abreast of new developments in the field. The report provides an overview of the literature entered into the ERIC database in 1989 on computer use in elementary and secondary education, adult education, and special education. Higher education is excluded from the report. The bibliography is divided into four sections: Computer Assisted Instruction--Overview Documents, Special Applications, Subject Applications, and Special Populations. The first section contains abstracts for documents that provide a general discussion of computer assisted instruction (CAI). The second section covers artificial intelligence, computer equity, computer literacy, computer simulation, copyright, counseling and guidance, interactive video, management/administration, research, software evaluation, telecommunications, testing, and trends. The third section encompasses business, English as a second language and foreign languages, fine arts, language arts, the Logo programming language, mathematics, programming, reading, science, social studies, vocational education, and writing. The fourth section contains abstracts on adult education, disabled learners, distance education, learning disabled, and preschool education. Within each section, items are listed alphabetically by personal author, editor, or corporate author and contain the document title, publication date, number of pages, price, type of document, descriptors, and abstract. An author index and information on ordering documents from the ERIC Document Reproduction Center conclude the document. (DB)
