Enhancing Instruction through Technology.
Greenleaf, Connie; Gee, Mary Kay
Following an introductory section that provides a rationale for using computers in workplace literacy classes, this guide reviews six computer programs and provides activities that teachers can use with the programs in teaching workplace literacy classes. The six computer programs reviewed are as follows: "Grammar Games,""Spell It 3,""The Way Things Work,""My First Incredible Amazing Dictionary,""Community Exploration," and "First Connections: The Golden Book Encyclopedia." Except for "Grammar Games" and "Spell It 3," the software reviews provide information on the version of the program, the vendor, the system requirements, the type of program, the documentation included, and the recommended group size. They also describe the programs, explain how they work, and evaluate them. Activities for each program include information on type of activity, level of learner, National Workplace Literacy Learner Objectives, materials and resources, procedures, evaluation, and (sometimes) extensions.
