Eurit 86: Developments in Educational Software and Courseware provides information pertinent to innovative prototypes, design and development approaches, product evaluation, organization of production, and implementation. This book discusses the integration of information technology in education. Organized into seven parts encompassing 104 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the educational policy in relation to its response to information technology. This text then provides a brief summary of the development of courseware with emphasis on the problems encountered in implementing it in schools. Other chapters consider the use of technology in the science laboratory, which can provide useful experience with regard to its effects on the science curriculum. This book discusses as well the implementation strategies for computers in education. The final chapter deals with the economics of educational software. This book is a valuable resource for software developers, engineers, computer programmers, researchers, courseware developers, teachers, and teacher trainers.
