Using Technology To Support Comprehensive Guidance Program Operations: A Variety of Strategies.
Bowers, Judy
The Tucson Unified School District made a goal for 2000-2001 for all counselors to have their own computer at school. This article looks at how these computers are used to enhance the counselors' jobs. At the district level, the staff communicates with counselors through e-mail. Meeting reminders, general information, and upcoming events are quickly updated. Counselors are able to obtain lesson plans, books, and other resources from the Internet and from associations such as the American School Counselor Association. Counselors also directly use computers with their students. Career and college software programs are used with both middle and high school students. Corresponding with neighboring or national districts is possible via the Internet. Support for the program is provided through the district home page. This information is used to evaluate student performance and to suggest solutions for raising achievement. Future plans include updating the guidance and counseling home page to provide direct links to resources, and arranging for free instructions for counselors in computer and Internet use. (JDM)
