Preparing for Computer Assisted Instruction.
Dyer, Charles A.
The general principles of cumputer operation and the concepts and methods of programing are described in this introductory text aimed at educators with little or no experience in the field of computer-assisted instruction. The principles and practical considerations involved in planning for and implementing the use of the computer in teaching subject matter are discussed. A procedure is outlined for the preparation of materials for computer presentation, and examples of planning and programing are provided. The book provides a workable set of steps and several useful descriptive devices for implementing most kinds of lessons on a computer. An exploration is attempted of the role of the computer in the classroom in terms of the kinds of activity which the machine makes possible and the role of the teacher in these activities. No mathematical background is required in order to follow the presentation. A glossary and a reference file of vendors of hardware, software, and services supplement the text. (JY)
