Technology in Adult School to Work. Final Report, 1997-98.
Conrady, Sue R.
This document consists of a brief report and a resource manual developed by a project designed to help 34 students registered in a General Educational Development (GED) program to develop self- and career-awareness through computer-assisted instruction. According to the report, all 34 students used the computer for self- and career-awareness. The project also aimed to provide 25 GED students with job shadowing experiences. Students did not readily accept job shadowing experiences, and only three complete job shadows occurred. Although the project aimed to place 25 GED students into training programs or job interviews based on their career portfolios, only 9 students entered work after leaving the program. The resource manual developed by the project contains the following: a school-to-work activities log; directions for computer operations; a curriculum resource list with seven books, two magazines, and five videos; and brief overviews of four computer programs. A section on using the Internet includes a glossary, activities, and answer keys. The next section lists 22 websites. Each entry includes the address and classroom application(s), and some entries describe the site's content. A list of rules for comma usage concludes the manual. (YLB)
