PLATO and Fourth Grade Mathematics.
Stake, Bernadine Evans
The purpose of the case study was to understand the effects of computer-based PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automatic Teaching Operations) mathematics curriculum on the classroom environment and the children in it. A cultural perspective was taken and anthropological techniques were used to investigate children's learning of mathematics in the context of a PLATO classroom. The data were obtained through observations and interviews over two years of one teacher and selected children, plus a teacher log and discussions with the curriculum developers. Results show that the children and the teacher benefited from the PLATO mathematics curriculum in achievement, typing, reading, and enthusiasm in mathematics. (MN)
