An Apple for the Teacher Computers and Work in Elementary Schools


An Apple for the Teacher Computers and Work in Elementary Schools by Melissa Evans-Andris

Factors that influence a teacher's decision whether or not to use computer technology as an instructional tool are explored in this book. Based on her own research, Melissa Evans-Andris discusses the ways teachers use computers; identifies administrative behaviours that support or inhibit the use of computers in schools; and recommends specific strategies for implementing educational computer use.
