It incorporates the Schools Computing On-line Resources database which is a database of information about all aspects of the use of computers in schools. The database includes information about all types of software including application, educational and system software, curriculum materials and professional development for teachers. The database of educational software is built on the catalogue of software held at the WA Non-Government Schools Computing Centre and currently includes mainly software for the Apple II, BBC and Microbee microcomputers. Information about software for other microcomputers is in the process of being added. A number of pages have been included as examples of information about hardware, professional development and curriculum materials in the field of schools computing. The database was initially developed by the Western Australian Educational Computing Consortium at the Curtin University of Technology (formerly the Western Australian Institute of Technology) as part of a project funded by the Commonwealth Curriculum Development Centre to examine the feasibility of establishing a national software clearinghouse. The database has been considerably expanded and updated since then. Feedback and comments regarding SCOR are welcomed and should be addressed to: John A Winship, Acting Director, Computing Centre, Curtin University of Technology, Kent St., Bentley WA 6102, (09) 350 5959.
