Computer Assisted Instruction for the Mentally Retarded.
Providence Coll., RI.
Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) for the mentally retarded is described; the advantages of CAI (which generally follows the pattern of programed instruction) are listed; and the roles of the teacher and the student are summarized. The coursewriter is explained, and its use as an experimental tool discussed. Guidelines are given covering objective and demonstration, liaison between instructors, CAI as a tool, the teacher and the computer, and the relationship between the teacher and the program. A synopsis is given of comments by teachers enrolled in the CAI workshop. Samples are provided of three problems involved in computer instruction: analyzing a beginning balance sheet, the electric circuit, and calculating and estimating paper costs. Sample coursewriter sheets, two figures, and a list of teachers participating in the workshop are included. (BW)
