This article describes a staff development model that was created as part of the process of establishing an experimental school. The model is directul specifically at educators working within computerized learning environments. A case study method was used, along with a content analysis of three years of observation. The research concludes that staff development within computerized learning environments requires three components: a clear rationale regarding the school’s objectives, a broad computer inftastructure including personal computers for teachers, and professional computer people witntn the school coupled with on-thejob individual support. The article also compares this model to the more traditional staff development model.
