CAI Myths that Need to Be Destroyed and CAI Myths that We Ought to Create.
Hansen, Duncan N.; Johnson, Barbara
Five widely-held myths about computer-assisted instruction (CAI) are exposed: 1) the teacher is the total instruction, 2) the CAI computer is designed for instruction, 3) there is one best CAI language for computer usage, 4) the biggest cost of CAI is machinery, and 5) a lack of learning materials exists in CAI. A framework for understanding, conceptualizing, and integrating major educational functions via information management systems (IMS) is proposed. IMS has the following primary functions: information retrieval of administrative and institutional data; training requirements for personnel; and computer support of instruction via computer-managed instruction (CMI), CAI, and learning simulation.
