Teacher Controlled Computer Assisted Instruction.
Bell, Norman T.; Moon, Robert D.
In this time of high cost, it is important not to focus on tutorial computer-assisted instruction (CAI) as the only way to use a computer effectively in instruction. Teacher controlled CAI--classroom use of CAI, augmented by a television display--provides one alternative. Non-tutorial classroom demonstrations can be arranged in business education, in science, and in statistics. Simple games with a computer can be played by a Mathematics class and, also, by a Language Arts class. Another alternative, not usually considered as being part of CAI, is class use of information retrieval. High cost may even be justified when computers are used to teach about computers. A computer program for determining whether to rent or to buy a computer system is given. (MF)
