Incorporating a Computer into the Classroom: Lessons Learned in Kindergarten. Instructional Resource No. 20.
Labbo, Linda D.; And Others
Noting that one of the biggest challenges facing teachers in the late 20th century is knowing how to help students learn to use a computer as a literacy tool, this brochure shares six ways that one kindergarten teacher successfully incorporated the computer as an informal literacy tool in her classroom. The brochure first discusses the teacher (considered an exemplary teacher by her colleagues), her emergent literacy educational philosophy, and the students (who reflect the changing demographics of the surrounding urban community). The brochure then discusses the six suggestions: (1) seeking preparation; (2) giving introductions; (3) offering invitations; (4) allowing explorations; (5) providing occasions; and (6) expecting transformations.
