MANIPULATION PAD--PRELIMINARY REPORT ON A STUDENT-COMPUTER INTERFACE DEVICE FOR PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION.
BALL, J.R.; AND OTHERS
AN INVESTIGATION WAS MADE OF SOME ENTIRELY NEW INPUT-OUTPUT DEVICES DESIGNED TO SOLVE SOME FUNCTIONAL AND ECONOMIC PROBLEMS THAT ARE PRESENT IN EXISTING COMPUTER-CONTROLLED INSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT. THREE FORMS OF MANIPULATION PAD WERE STUDIED. INFORMATION ABOUT SPECIALLY PREPARED OBJECTS PLACED ON THE FLAT SURFACE OF THE PAD WAS SUPPLIED TO A COMPUTER PERMITTING THE DETERMINATION OF THE NUMBER, SIZE, SHAPE, AND ORIENTATION OF THE OBJECTS WHICH CAN BE FREELY MANIPULATED BY A STUDENT. THE CONSTRUCTION OF A DEMONSTRATION MODEL OF THE FERROMAGNETIC OBJECT RECOGNITION MATRIX (FORM) MANIPULATION PAD WAS REPORTED IN DETAIL. PRELIMINARY RESULTS INDICATED THAT A SATISFACTORY MANIPULATION PAD FOR PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION HAD BEEN ACHIEVED WITH THE WORKING MODEL OF FORM. (AL)
