Rows, Isles or Peninsulas? An Analysis of Computer Laboratory Layouts in Schools.
Albertson, Tim; Selwood, Stuart
This study investigated computer laboratories in New Zealand schools. A questionnaire was used to obtain information in four areas: (1) demographic data, including the name of the school, class levels, governing authority, gender composition, roll size, staffing, and socio-economic ranking; (2) qualitative and quantitative data about the school's computer laboratories; (3) similar data about external computer laboratories; and (4) number and types of computers owned by the school. This report discusses results related to the date of establishment of a school's first computer laboratory, computer laboratory layout, reasons for choosing layouts, uses of computer laboratories, and time usage of laboratories. A chart presents student-centered, teacher-centered, and management-centered reasons for selection of the layout. (AEF)
