Helping Teachers Effectively Use Computers in the Educational Setting.
Jones, Lori Ann
The large number of teachers not using computers in the classroom for administrative or instructional purposes was addressed by the implementation of a computer inservice workshop. The program described in this report was aimed at 18 teachers in a junior high school who reported that they did not feel comfortable using computers, or did not know how to use computers effectively. The teacher workshop consists of twelve 1-hour sessions that gave teachers hands-on practice and introduced them to computer hardware and software. The success of the inservice was measured by class assignments, a survey, and a post-test. At the end of the 12 week program, 84% of the inservice teachers reported feeling more comfortable using computers in the classroom. It was concluded that hands-on computer inservice workshops can help teachers become familiar with new technologies. Appendices include the questionnaires used for the teacher and inservice surveys, results of these surveys, a brainstorming activity, and a computer literacy test. (18 references) (Author/DB)
