Toward Automated Learning. A Professional Paper.
Becker, James W.
Individually Prescribed Instruction, the Automated Learning Management System, Computer Assisted Instruction, and the Interactive System are discussed in a general way in this paper that, nevertheless, describes the state of the art. Although these four developments, treated as four modes in the same process, are considered to be a major break from traditional education, the idea that instant changes in education are possible is repudiated. Administration and the social ambience of schools must be changed, more basic research needs to be done, a great deal more money must be spent, and increasingly, new areas of effort are going to have to be precisely defined. Universities will then be forced to accept the new disciplines. (GO)
