Integrating Telecomputing into the Curriculum of South Carolina's Educational System.
Townsend, Catherine M.
This paper describes a movement by South Carolina educators over the last 10 years to integrate telecomputing into the existing curriculum and presents ideas for furthering this goal. The paper identifies four services that are seen as the most essential for all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators alike: (1) personal access to electronic mail, both at school and at home; (2) immediate access to a school-wide bulletin board system giving announcements, events, and specific messages; (3) classroom access to word-processing, databases, and multimedia authoring programs; and (4) classroom access to online research materials either from the school library media center, or via the Internet. The technology already exists to make all of these services and others available; what is needed now is commitment from teachers, administrators, governing bodies, and the financial controllers. A 23-item list of print and video references is included. (JLB)
