Computer Assisted Instruction in Elementary/Secondary Education: The State of the Art.
Computer assisted instruction (CAI) is defined in this paper as a process which exploits the memory capacity and computational capabilities of a computer to allow a unique interaction between a student and curricular subject matter. Several modes of CAI are briefly described; in a CAI overview, the drill and practice mode is focused on elementary and secondary education, with reference to the relationship between the improvement of public education and the attempt to confront socioeconomic crises. The need for the development of a more economical CAI system is also stressed. (SP)
