Mentoring: An Approach to Technology Education for Teachers, Executive Overview [and] Computer Mentoring: A Case Book [and] Computer Mentoring Course Guide.
MacArthur, Charles A.; And Others
The purpose of this packet is to assist school districts and other agencies in establishing a technology education program based on the computer mentor model. An "Executive Overview" is provided, along with the "Computer Mentoring Course Guide" and "Computer Mentoring: A Case Book." The Computer Mentor program was designed to prepare experienced computer-using teachers to serve as mentors to other teachers in their school sites. The program was implemented as a cooperative effort of the University of Maryland and the Prince Georges County Public Schools. Mentors, who selected one to five teachers as proteges, participated in a one-semester course that provided guidance and information on specific technology and resources. Summative evaluation data for 2 semesters and 21 mentors (54 proteges) indicated the value of the program in affecting teacher attitudes and technology use. The "Computer Mentoring Course Guide" includes specific information and samples pertaining to the program's course. "Computer Mentoring: A Case Book" provides a compilation of issues and experiences encountered by former program mentors. It is used as a resource in the mentor course. In addition, a videotape, "Mentoring: Issues and Concerns," is available. (Contains 6 references.) (SLD)
