Computer Augmented Learning; A Survey.
The report contains a description and summary of computer augmented learning devices and systems. The devices are of two general types programed instruction systems based on the teaching machines pioneered by Pressey and developed by Skinner, and the so-called "docile" systems that permit greater user-direction with the computer under student control. Even sympathetic criticisms by practitioners reveal limited understanding of the psychology of learning and knowing, expose potential restrictions to adequate selection of computer-based curricula, and recognize technical hazards that impede the development of effective computerized educational tools.
