Book Description. Originally published in , this book differed from others on the topic of microcomputers and education at the time, in that it focuses on the influence that microcomputer technology has on children in their early years, specially pre-school and elementary ages. This book was written to help classroom teachers, lay persons, and school personnel understand the role of microcomputers in education. It has been especially designed for undergraduate and graduate technology-based education programs. Specific education examples and applications are provided throughout the book and exercises have been designed for students to further explore specific.   Measuring the Level of Teacher Concerns over Microcomputers in Instruction Rachelle S. HELLER and C. Dianne MARTIN Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, The George Washington University, Washington, DC , USA The attitudes and concerns of teachers regarding the use of innovation, such as microcomputers in instruction, will de- termine whether or not the . A microcomputer is a small, relatively inexpensive computer with a microprocessor as its central processing unit (CPU). It includes a microprocessor, memory and minimal input/output (I/O) circuitry mounted on a single printed circuit board (PCB). Microcomputers became popular in the s and s with the advent of increasingly powerful microprocessors.

  Instructional Environment Fifty-eight percent of the computer-using teachers reported they did not have a microcomputer in their classroom, 28% reported that they had 1 microcomputer in their room, and 6% reported 20 or more microcomputers (see Table 1). In contrast, 72% of the computer-using teachers reported their schools had a microcomputer lab.   April Selecting operations research software for classroom microcomputers Based on the preceding discussion, one may phrase the problem definition as: "Select a computer package for supporting an MBA, OR survey type, one semester OR course, where both solutions of problems and what-if analysis is going to be used.". The purpose of this book is to help teachers feel at ease with microcomputers so that they will begin to think of computers as tools that they themselves might use. There are four chapters. The first chapter provides basic information to help a user understand the computer. Discussed are how the computer is put together and how it works. To help teachers generate ideas about how this new.   As microcomputers-small, relatively inexpensive, easily moveable-make their way into classrooms, it becomes important to ask how their presence may affect the social life of the classroom.
