Teaching and Learning with Computers. Position Paper.
Teacher Education Conference Board, Albany, NY.
This booklet examines the current instructional uses of computers, their demands on teachers and teacher trainers, and the measures required to further promote their use. Five principal educational computer uses are addressed: (1) learning from computers in drill and practice and tutorial programs; (2) learning with computers using simulations and games; (3) learning about computers and their operation, or "computer literacy"; (4) promoting the ability to think through discovery, self-correction, and the combination of simple structures into more complex ones; and (5) managing learning with computers. It is recommended that educators develop school district computer guidelines and increase personal knowledge of the uses of computers through self-study, school workshops, and formal course work. A glossary, 7-item reference list, and a bibliography of 16 books, 10 journals, and 13 selected journal articles are included. (LMM)
