Center for the Study. Abstract Following an initial survey of microcomputer use in Hertfordshire primary schools, a second, follow-up survey was conducted two years later to examine how experience had changed attitudes. schools used in the survey, presents the initial results about the number and primary uses of microcomputers in schools today, and introduces some of the topics that will be cov-ered in greater detail in upcoming.

Findings indicate that: (1) U.S. schools are now usingmicrocomputers, a 75% increase over the school year; (2) public school use of micros (%) still exceeds private (%. In the school year, microcomputers were located in one-third of United States schools.

The dominant share for school-based microcomputers was held by Apple Computer followed by Tandy-Radio Shack and Commodore, but this was regionally related. The majority of teachers polled possess positive attitudes toward classroom use of microcomputers.

A survey by AI Bork and Jack Chambers indicated that over 90% of school districts in the United States now make some use of computers. Data from other sources lead to estimates that by the end of there will be an average of three microcomputers per school building in the United States.

Abstract. Microcomputers can greatly enhance information processing by clinicians and improve the quality of health care.

We surveyed full- and part-time faculty members to assess the state of microcomputer use in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ont.

schools were interviewed to obtain more in-depth information about experiences with using microcomputers. In the schools surveyed, the percentage of schools holding microcomputers seems to have stabilized at around percent.

The number of computers held per school has shown a dramatic increase over the eight-year period. Students in all groups scored about the same on a survey of mathematics attitudes. In grade 3 the cost per month of grade placement gain in total mathematics was about $20 per student for microcomputer assisted instruction and $33 per student for conventional instruction.

These costs were about $17 and $27, respectively, in grade 5. A microcomputer sounds like some fancy technological miniature, but it’s exactly as the name implies – a small scale computer. Many modern notebook laptops, such as the Chromebook, fall into this category.

They run on a microprocessor and use a single circuit board to perform. With technology taking up so much of the modern world, [ ]. You are a researcher working for an educational research firm.

A revised concept of health data documentation in schools was tried out in a pilot project in two districts of the city of Hamburg over a period of 2 years.

Standardised findings comparable with the so-called "Bielefeld Model" are documented in an EDP-compatible school health record book and fed into a personal computer by members of the school.introduce computers in our schools.
