Summary

Special education teachers (N=167), teacher trainees (N=122), and administrators (N=8) responded to questionnaires regarding their commitment to acquiring basic microcomputer skills. Teachers believed that they were worth more than their current salaries, and that districts could afford to pay them more to aid them in, and as a reward for, the acqusisition of new skills. Administrators, however, believed that the districts had difficulties paying teachers more. Teachers' interest in microcomputers was matched to their desire to enroll in coursework to learn these skills. Administrators were equally interested but did not view coursework as the approach of choice. Teachers considered that microcomputer skills were related to instruction of handicapped children more clearly than did teacher trainees. Administrators perceived different uses for microcomputers than either group. Teachers wanted at least part of the course costs paid by their districts. Deterrants to learning microcomputer skills included shortage of time, time conflicts, and doubts about microcomputer availability. (CL)
