SOME FEEDBACK FROM DISCUSSION GROUPS-NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE SELECTION AND USE OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, JUNE 26, 27, 28, 1963.
CONFERENCE GROUPS MET TO CLARIFY POSITIONS AND UNDERSCORE PROBLEMS ON PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION. PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION SHOULD DEVELOP AN IMAGE THAT CONNOTES A PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION WITH ATTENTION TO THE SPECIFICS OF CONTENT, SHAPING, AND PROGRAM SELECTION AND USE. THE POPULAR APPEAL OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION MAY GO BEYOND PRESENT PRACTICE AND FOCUS ON THE ASSUMPTIONS THAT IT MAKES ABOUT LEARNING AND INSTRUCTION--IF THE STUDENT DOES NOT LEARN, IT IS THE INSTRUCTION THAT IS AT FAULT, THE INDIVIDUAL PERFORMER IS UNIQUE AND SHOULD RECEIVE INSTRUCTION FITTED TO HIM, LEARNING IS FACILITATED BY CONTINUOUS KNOWLEDGE OF PROGRESS, THE STUDENT'S OVERT BEHAVIOR PROVIDES THE BASIS OR FEEDBACK BY WHICH PROGRESS IS ESTIMATED, AND WHATEVER IS LEARNED SHOULD BE ANALYZED FOR SOME BASIC ORDERLINESS. THE CONFERENCE GROUPS PRESENTED THEIR CONCERNS FOR PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN QUESTION FORM. QUESTIONS DEALING WITH EVALUATION WERE--WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS IN BEHAVIORAL TERMS AND FOR TEACHERS IN OVERALL INSTRUCTIONAL TERMS, WHAT SHOULD A COMMERCIAL PROGRAM HAVE WHENEVER POSSIBLE, AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES SHOULD THE BODY OF THE PROGRAM BE EXAMINED. QUESTIONS PERTAINING TO ADMINISTRATIVE PROBLEMS CONCERNED SCHEDULING, TRAINING OF TEACHERS, COSTS, ORIENTATION OF STAFF, CHILDREN AND PARENTS, BUILDING SPACE, ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF MACHINE DEVICES, AND REPORTS OF PUPIL ACHIEVEMENT. OTHER QUESTIONS FOCUSED ON TEACHER ROLE AND PUPIL ROLE. SEVERAL GROUPS NOTED THAT PROGRAMING WOULD TAKE DIFFERENT FORMS IN DIFFERENT SUBJECT FIELDS AS WELL AS WITHIN SUBJECTS. A LIST OF 14 QUESTIONS PRESENTED CRITERIA FOR RESEARCH.
