Using Computers in Summer Fun in the City.
Young, Eileen Boyle; Kerr, April
Summer Fun in the City was a pilot inclusion project of the Council for Retarded Citizens of Jefferson County, Kentucky. It was a 2-week recreational educational program for students, ages 7 to 14, with diverse abilities and disabilities. One component of the program was the use of computers, with children using LogoWriter as their tool. The program's teachers, who were simultaneously enrolled in a graduate education course, reviewed research on the use of Logo with special needs students, learned how to use LogoWriter and Macintosh computers as learning tools, and learned how to use computers as an integral part of the curriculum. Students were divided into small integrated groups to complete individual and small group writing and drawing activities. Computer activities were integrated into the curriculum by having students use the computers to create name badges to wear on field trips, draw and label scenes seen on field trips, and compose thank you letters to field trip hosts.
