Tying into Computers.
Canipe, Stephen L.
Topics in this paper include: sources of computer programs, public domain software, copyright violations, purposes of computers in classrooms (drill/practice and interactive learning), computer assisted instruction, flow charts, and computer clubs (such as App-le-kations in Charlotte, North Carolina). A complete listing of two computer programs (in Applesoft Basic) are also listed, "LIGHT BULB" and "BLASTOFF." The first program sets up an introductory graphic of a light bulb and Duke Power Plant, gets the user's name and provides feedback, erases Duke Power identifier and leaves light bulb, causes the light to flash on/off, asks questions of the user, and uses a flashing subroutine if the answer is correct and a noise subroutine if the answer is incorrect. The second program, written as a reward program to provide motivation, clears the screen and produces a countdown with sound from 10-0, provides a blastoff sound, draws a rocket and flame, moves the rocket up the screen, and clears with screen printing an "A-OK" message.
