Pro essional Studies Computing educational methods Two separate grants from the Tandy Corp. affected Iegree requirements and provided new learning aids within e education department. A grant of 16 computers and software allowed the depart- ent to create its own computer lab. The grant led to a new quirement for all majors in the department to be trained on e computer system before graduation. The main purpose of the new lab and its requirement was make students feel more comfortable around computers, cording tojeri Pfeifer, professor of education, who was in- rumental in arranging the grants. "We were running into situations in the public schools here computers were available and the students would now how to use the computer but the teacher would not," lid Pfeifer. "The purpose of the new degree requirement as to give all education majors, who planned to become ertified, the ability to know when the computer is a good 'aching tool and when to use other methods ofteachingf' Pfeifer said that many graduates already had been asked in job interview whether or not they were familiar with com- ters. "I'm not sure how much it has to do with someone tting or not getting a job, but I do know our graduates are ing asked about their abilities with computers, and we ant them to be able to answer positively." The second grant from the Tandy Corp. involved three Ilodel III TRS-80 computers, three color computers, two 'inters and other assorted software to be used in reading inics. Although the clinic also was taught in the fall as a regular ass, the first use of the computers was in the summer dur- g the five weeks of the children's reading clinic.

The computers were used to diagnois each child's level of reading, spelling and other abilities. With that information, the computers were helpful in designing individual activities for each child to help with the child's specific problems. "The computers were a wonderful motivation for the children in the clinic," said Pfeifer. "Once we got them on there we could hardly get them off. Sometimes the computer was able to reach a child when no other method could." - George Brown -1-,ar xl'--i..,,,-.. x ,VKKV 'faire Top right: A student listens during a class lecture.
