Developing computer use in education : guidelines, trends, and issues by Jonathan Anderson( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to provide educational policy-makers and decision-makers with a basis for the development of guidelines for the development of education programs, this report presents an overview of trends and issues in computer education within the countries of the Asia and Pacific region. The impact of computers on society is described, as well as the more recent impact of the microcomputer on classrooms in the region. Likely future developments in computing are then discussed, together with the need for research on the effectiveness of computer instruction and how best to introduce computer use in education. Policy issues considered include the relationship of schools to society; equity of access to information; security and privacy; ergonomic and health factors; and computer awareness in the broader community. Hardware considerations are also discussed, including evaluation and selection; costs; site preparation; maintenance; local requirements; special features; and insurance. Various instructional and management applications of computers and the need for the development of appropriate software are considered, as well as the need for both preservice and inservice education for teachers. Curriculum requirements at the school level, postsecondary or tertiary level, and for nonformal education are also examined. Discussion of key issues to be considered in developing a national policy on computer education and an examination of new demands being made on literacy teaching conclude the report. Twenty-five references and a glossary of computer terms are appended. (Km)
