Clinical Teaching with Computer Aids. The Bartlesville System.
Gamble, Rondal R.
Some people are endowed with advantages which allow them to make full use of educational opportunities. Others, for one reason or another, become high-risk students with limited educational possibilities. Almost all students at some period of time are appropriately identified in the "high risk" category. A more effective method than those presently used (Head Start, Job Corps) in aiding these high risk students, may be approached by total community involvement and through the use of operational evaluation and instruction by computerized assistance. High risk students are faced primarily with the chore of gaining a required part of the desirable attributes related to more acceptable groups. Approaches to developing life styles are given. The ability to quantify any information is highly desirable from a deterministic point of view. For the high risk student, knowing all the emotional forces that are involved in his life may be necessary for basic survival. This need can be met with computers. Simulation evaluation of alternative models would also be possible. The objectives and necessary activities are outlined and include: (1) collection of personal data, (2) identification of subgroups, and (3) identification of sources of funding. (Author/KJ)
