Abstract:

Sixteen computer phobic students were identified in four successive annual intakes of teacher trainees undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma in Education course. Written, behavioural and interview responses were used to identify the phobic groups. Special computer sessions were arranged to try to produce a more balanced attitude towards computers and computing. The students' phobic condition was found to be amenable to change. The sessions included 16 factors that were considered important in reducing student levels of fear. An aggregation and ranking of these therapeutic factors resulted in 10 recommendations for assisting computerphobics redress their anxiety imbalance.
