CABS Project, Computers and Basic Skills: A Design Model for Writing Computer Programs That Teach the Basic Skills to LD and SL Students.
Becnel, Shirley T.
The report presents a framework for the application of a curriculum model to computer programs designed for special education students, specifically slow learners and learning disabled students in regular and special education classes. The program content includes selected basic skills instructional components that are transferable to a computer. The instructional model used is Gagne's algorithm which reflects cognitive learning theory. There is a discussion of the integrative nature of the program and an explanation of program design including data regarding student and teacher response. (General and sample lesson plans for both mathematics and the language arts are included; instructional computer program names are listed with brief comments.) (Author/CL)
