Educational Computing and Technology - March 1990

Taking Control

Policy Making

'There are numerous references to control technology in the National Curriculum documents, yet it is one of the areas of educational computing which creates most panic and confusion.  We begin a series on control technology which answers the questions 'what is control technology?' and 'how do I go about teaching control in the classroom?'

We also look at what IT policies can mean in two very different educational establishments - a nursery school and a secondary school - and review database use with a comparison of the functions of some of the more common ones.  The pull-out poster in the centre pages also features databases.
