Beyond Computer Literacy: Addressing the Evolution of Technology Standards.
Reehm, Sue P.; Long, Shirley A.
This paper is a report on findings of a study conducted with the purpose of assessing the level of technology skills of graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in the teacher education program at Eastern Kentucky University. The study revealed both strengths and weaknesses in relation to a new technology standard for teachers recently adopted by the state of Kentucky. A survey focusing on computer skills needed by adult users of computer hardware and software was administered to three cohorts of undergraduate students: (1) all students enrolled in the first course in the language arts sequence for elementary and middle grade majors; (2) all students enrolled in the elementary blocked methods classes; and (3) all students enrolled in middle grades methods classes. Marked differences were found among the three groups. These differences were analyzed and used as a basis for recommended changes in the teacher education program. (MES)
