Using Instructional Technology with Homebound Students.
Copper, Linda Royahn
This paper describes a pilot program conducted in Baltimore County, Maryland, which involves using an Apple IIc computer with homebound students. The computer is used to initiate a unit or topic, to provide drill and practice, to review or reinforce a concept, and to motivate students. A sample home teaching lesson plan on the topic of measurement and fractions briefly illustrates the computer application in home tutoring. Results of a survey of Maryland educators of students who are homebound or hospitalized found that 15 of 20 educators use computers with their students, primarily for mathematics, science, and language arts. The survey examined problems in computer use and ideas for improving the use of computers. Examples are cited of positive outcomes of home computer usage with confined children. (JDD)
