Abstract

Two hundred forty teachers participated in a study on the development of computer literacy conducted in computer education classes at Arizona State University from the summer of 1980 through the fall of 1982. The results revealed a positive correlation of r = +0.72 between the average attitudes toward computers and the average level of computer knowledge of the teachers surveyed. The teachers also indicated an appreciation for the value ofcomputers in the classroom and expressed interest in expanding their computer knowledge.
