Germann, Paul J.; Barrow, Lloyd H. – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1996

Provides the results of a survey of science teachers (n=635) regarding the status of computer use and professional development needs related to the use of computers in classrooms. Results indicate that 91% of the classrooms have computers. Professional development needs are categorized by groups: non/past users, novices, and users/experts. (DDR)
