The main emphasis of this book is on classroom and curricular integration, not on computer technology. Its curriculum-based approach to using microcomputers addresses the needs and concerns of preservice and inservice teachers of different experiential backgrounds, from computer novice through long-time proficient users. The text is at the cutting edge of current curriculum approaches to the Internet, World Wide Web, classroom networks, and multimedia applications. Just as importantly, this book reflects the shift of emphasis in how schools are putting technology to use with K-12 youngsters a?? toward genuine fusion of instructional processes and computer use in diverse content areas and grade levels.
The new three-part structure of the book covers: 1) information on the integration of technology into the curriculum (in all 10 chapters); 2) supportive computer literacy and technology information (within the six a??primera?? sections interspersed throughout the text); and 3) computer and pedagogical resources (at chapters' ends and on the Companion Website.) Thus, the text emphasizes methods of classroom and curricular integration while simultaneously presenting the computer as a technology. The authors address all the information and issues that need to be considered when integrating computers into a classroom.
