Meeting Software Needs of Public and Higher Education: A Collaborative Model.
Krawchuk, Cheryl
This paper discusses the ongoing prototype of the Software Collaboration Model designed to meet the needs of both public and higher education. The model is based on instructional design principles and proposes that both public and higher education institutions can benefit through the collaboration of senior software design students and inservice public school teachers. Topics discussed include the rationale behind the project, participants, the precautionary measures taken to prevent either collaborating party's needs from being ignored, and the phases of the Software Collaborative Model (interest, equipment, program design, development, testing/training, and implementation). Findings from the initial prototype indicate that the model needs to be modified, giving more attention to communication between all involved parties, instructional design, and allowing for revisions of each step of the process; such modifications have been made, and a revised model is suggested. Two figures illustrating the initial prototype and the revised model are included. (DLS)
