Ornstein, Jacob; And Others
Seeking to determine the extent to which educational technology is represented in the field of language instruction, this study presents a three-part survey of historical developments and current practices in this area. Part One examines the development of programed instruction in the language field, while focusing on research and development at the university level, computer-assisted instruction, commercial and federal involvement, and foreign interests. Another major section deals with programed instruction and theories of language and methodology of language teaching including a review of trends in linguistic theory, criticism of programed instruction, the systems approach, and the future of programed language- learning. The final section discusses the practical components of a programed language course including: (1) "designed learning," (2) step-increment, (3) reinforcement, (4) conditioning auditory ability, (5) conditioning for sound production, (6) from sound to writing, (7) morphology, (8) developing linguistic skills, (9) aptitude, and (10) attitude. A bibliography is provided. (RL)
