Integrating Computers Into the Classroom: The Missing Key
Integrating Computers into the Classroom provides a clear, workable action plan for successfully and effectively integrating computers into instruction to take full advantage of the technology and to create a truly "Information Age" classroom. The principles presented are based on a survey of over 700 faculty members within a public school district, who were asked about their requirements for and perceptions of integrating computers into the curriculum. The result is a framework for planning and implementing computer integration that emphasizes adequate support for faculty through inservice training programs and the availability of computer support personnel. Also included are strategies for cooperative planning and implementation within a school district or university to ensure compliance, quality and consistency. Whether you are involved in planning and implementing computer strategies for a school district, college, or university, or you are an instructor interested in integrating computers into your classroom, Integrating Computers into the Classroom offers valuable ideas and strategies for realizing the promise of computers in education.
