PILOT: A Programming Language for Beginners.
Schnorr, Janice M.
The presentation describes PILOT (Programmed Inquiry, Learning or Teaching), a special programing language easy for beginners to learn and available for several brands of microcomputers. PILOT is explained to contain substantially fewer commands than most other languages and to be written in an easy to understand manner. Edit commands and their responses are indicated as are commands when PILOT is used on the Apple microcomputer. A demonstration lesson is presented. The paper concludes with eight guidelines for computer assisted instruction, including personalizing the lesson, using graphics and sound effects to motivate the students, and supplying instructionally appropriate helps to students when they miss items.
