Personal Computer Literacy: Personal and Professional Applications
Induction Class Year
The different uses to which two adult educators put their personal computers illustrate some of the many personal and professional applications of microcomputers and point to some implications for home computers in the field of adult education. Relying primarily upon prepared software packages, the first educator relies on his computer as a resource to aid in word processing and in home and professional management. The second educator, on the other hand, is primarily a hobbyist who finds his computer a constant source of intellectual stimulation. Both users of personal computers represent a significant potential market for credit and non-credit adult education offerings.
