Conceptual Tools for R&D on Applications of Microcomputers to Individualization.
This paper introducing a symposium--Cognitive Style and Microcomputers: A Review and Synthesis of Current and Needed Research and Development--presents issues attendant to research and development in cognitive styles and microcomputer uses within the context of instructional technology, with emphasis on the relationship of cognitive style to learners' general ability and prior learning. In examining needs for research in and on microcomputers in education, the heritage of programmed instruction and teaching machine research of the 1950's and 1960's is reviewed as that work relates to currently available practitioner's tools in instructional design and development. A plea for increased basic research on learner characteristics and the instructional media attributes of currently available high technology concludes the paper. (Author/LMM)
