Becnel, Shirley
Six classroom research-based instructional projects funded under Chapter 2 are described, and their outcomes are summarized. The projects each used computer hardware and software in the classroom setting. The projects and their salient points include: (1) the Science Technology Project, in which 48 teachers and 2,847 students in 18 schools used and evaluated 50 pieces of educational software, demonstrating its usefulness with middle school, junior high school, and high school students; (2) the Computer-Assisted Writing Strategies Project, in which 9 middle school special education disabled students used 6 pieces of software to improve error detection and correction in writing; (3) the Creative Writing by Computers project, in which 25 elementary school special education students, including the physically disabled, used 3 pieces of software to improve their writing skills; (4) Videomicroscopy, a project in which 49 10th-grade biology students used videomicroscopy to increase content knowledge and improve microscope skills; (5) Using Support Programs To Increase Functional Sight Vocabulary, a program to increase the sight vocabulary of 14 fifth graders in a remedial class through 6 pieces of software; and (6) Computer-Assisted Algebraic Instruction, in which 46 eighth graders used 4 pieces of software to graph algebraic equations. Program evaluations show the utility of computer software in the classroom and its potential for improving instruction. Thirty-one references are included. (SLD)
