Review quote

"All teachers' questions about computer use can be answered in this well-organized, clearly written book. Johnson's tone uplifts and motivates the reader to take on the challenge of developing computer skills. He provides a wonderful framework for teachers to create strategies, goals, and resources for proficient computer use. He sees computers as a way to empower teachers both personally and professionally. He offers a proven staff development plan based on his own experience with the CODE 77 Program, created in 1992 for the Mankato Public Schools in Minnesota. This book provides an overview of specific skills teachers can apply, from file management to hypermedia use. Each chapter provides skill objectives, self-assessment criteria, free advice, a model portfolio, and even homework. The book moves forward to more advanced computer skills that illustrate how instructional delivery can be modified and enhanced by computer technology. Johnson never loses focus of the need for assessment. The appendix provides some very useful examples and handouts, ranging from an application form for a CODE 77 Project to self-evaluation forms to tutorials. If technology coordinators and school administrators follow the tips and framework of the book, teachers will empower themselves to take full advantage of what computer technology has to offer. Highly Recommended." - The Book Reportshow more
