Title: Teacher’s Guide to Computers in the Elementary School
Author: Moursund, David G.
Abstract: January 2005 reprint of Dave Moursund’s 1980 booklet. This booklet is written for preservice and inservice elementary school teachers. Thus we will assume that you fall into one of those categories and speak directly to your needs. We will assume that you have used a calculator; it is desirable that you also have had some hands-on experience with a computer. A half hour's interaction with a computer will add substantial meaning to what follows. Many elementary schools have access to computers for instructional purposes. In the next few pages we describe a hypothetical interaction between a fourth grade student and a computer. The computer might be a self-contained microcomputer, costing $1,500 or less. Or the student may be interacting with a very large computer via telephone line to a terminal in the classroom. As you walk into the fourth grade classroom you see a student just sitting down in front of a TV set with a typewriter keyboard. You look over the student's shoulder at the TV display screen.
