The Computer in a Responsive Learning Environment; Let a Thousand Flowers Bloom.
Bork, Alfred M.
A description of the first two quarters of the beginning physics course at the University of California at Irvine is given. Lectures, films, student-computer dialogues and weekly assignment sheets dealing with special problems are used with much student choice allowed. Computer dialogues are used for proof learning, remedial mathematics, and simulation of physical systems. The general thesis is that the computer is a new but rapidly developing tool in instruction, a tool which has a selective potential for allowing different students to learn in different ways. (RB)
