Machines That Teach.
This paper reviews efforts which have been made to improve the effectiveness of teaching through the development of principles of programed teaching and the construction of teaching machines, concluding that a combination of computer technology and programed teaching principles offers an efficient approach to improving teaching. Three different aspects of the combination are considered--informing, controlling, and informing-controlling facilities--and the experimental work being done in Poland on prototypes of teaching machines and on the application of computers for didactic purposes is described.
