ENLIST Micros: Phase III Models for Establishing ENLIST Micros Teacher Centers.
Ellis, James D.
The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS), with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), is conducting the third phase of ENLIST Micros. ENLIST Micros: Phase I developed a set of training materials that present the knowledge and skills that science teachers need to use microcomputers in science teaching. Phase II developed a model for implementing microcomputers in science teaching. ENLIST Micros: Phase III builds on the first two phases to achieve the following major goals: (1) help teacher (K-12) improve their use of microcomputers in science teaching; (2) test three models for establishing a teacher enhancement project at sites throughout the nation; (3) determine the ability of regional sites to sustain a teacher enhancement project while phasing out external support; and (4) disseminate information about how to establish successful, self-sustaining teacher centers for improving science teaching. The need for educational reform, strategies for implementing microcomputers in science instruction, the ENLIST Micros implementation model, and extending ENLIST Micros throughout the United States are topics of discussion.
