A short history of computers emphasizing microcomputers and their use in education is followed by a discussion of current educational uses which includes a more detailed look at some representative applications in preschool, elementary, high school, and college settings.

An introduction to pilot, basic, and logo programming languages describes their general characteristics and offers a tutorial designed to allow users to write simple programs and to read and understand many educational programs. A section on types of educational applications introduces, explains, and provides examples of the major ways in which computers are used in educational settings, E.G., computer assisted instruction, computer managed instruction, and applications in assessment and evaluation, including individual program planning. The final section describes other information sources, including books, magazines and journals, and computer databases. (Lmm)

Qualitative research methods in education and educational technology by Jerry Willis( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Qualitative Research Methods in Education and Educational Technology was written for students and scholars interested in exploring the many qualitative methods developed over the last 50 years in the social sciences. The book does not stop, however, at the boundaries of the social sciences. Social scientists now consume and use research methods from many fields. The rich resources of research methods and theories from both the humanities and philosophy are also covered in this book. It explains why postpositivist quantitative research should not be "the only game in town" and provides solid theoretical foundations, beginning with the positions of Plato and Aristotle, for broadening our horizons about what warrants our attention. There are open ended and conceptual questions for each reading, and developing your own answers to them is one way you can extend your depth of understanding about qualitative research methods in education and educational technology."--BOOK JACKET
