Computers in Education: The Copernican Revolution in Education Systems.
Seidel, Robert J.
Computers and Automation, v18 n3 Mar 1969
With the computer and the environments it makes possible, the author feels, we are on the threshold of being able to coalesce the study of learning and the prescription of instruction. To accomplish this, however, man must change his egocentric views concerning the value of traditional education. In the future, he predicts, an interdisciplinary instructional team will design courses which will meet more efficiently the individual requirements of the students. He points to Instructional Model Prototypes Attainable in Computerized Training (IMPACT) as an example of a project which is aimed at the development of appropriate classes of instructional decision models.
