Programmed Learning and Computer-Based Instruction, Proceedings of the Conference on Application of Digital Computers to Automated Instruction (Washington, D.C., October 10 - 12, 1961).
Coulson, John E., Ed.
A symposium of scientists and educators interested in coordinating the often parallel but separate research and development efforts in programed learning and digital-computer utilization met to define more exactly the potentialities of the computer as an instructional aid. Their papers form the basis of this book. The first section of the book presents the techniques of automated teaching and programed learning, research problems, rudimentary behavior theory, a basic mathematical teaching model, and a discussion of the need to define educational goals. Part II describes the current attempts at applying computer technology to automated instruction, the basic equipment of a computer-based laboratory, and improvements in techniques of communication between computers and humans. The third and final part is concerned with systems considerations in computer usage and interactions between computer developments and automated teaching methods. (BB)
