Business Computer Applications.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
Ideas and activities are provided for teaching computer skills and applications in business classes. Divided into sections on general applications, accounting applications, and word processing, this guide is designed as a supplement for the teacher when exposing students to the uses of computers in these areas. Most of the activities require the use of a microcomputer; however, many can be used to introduce students to computers without actually having them available. The goal of the general applications activities is to develop skills necessary for office occupations and for a variety of personal uses such as money management. The accounting activities introduce the role of the computer in business and develop skills necessary for computerized accounting. The word processing activities are designed to develop job skills in the area of word processing. Also included are recommendations for purchasing and operating computer equipment. The appendix provides many short and simple computer program listings written in the BASIC language for use with the activities. The programs are written for Apple, TRS 80, and Commodore Pet computers, but they can be adapted to other computers with minor modifications. (DC)
