Information Regarding Teaching Machines and Programmed Learning.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario). Research Dept.
This brief review lists the major features of teaching machines and programed instruction. The ideal learning situation has these factors: 1) division of the subject into steps small enough to be grasped immediately; 2) specific, clear, sequential questions; 3) means for the student to proceed at his own pace; 4) means of causing the student to be a constant active participant. Teaching machines meet these qualifications better than the traditional classroom situation. (JK)
