Proceedings of the Canadian Symposium on Instructional Technology (Calgary, Alberta, May 24-26, 1972).
National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
A Symposium was held in May of 1972 to assist in the resolution of the varied problems effecting the advance of educational technology. Most of the papers presented at the symposium dealt with the current situation of various aspects of computer assisted instruction (CAI) throughout Canada. Other papers covered CAI centralization, minicomputers, co-operative research projects, educational games, educational management simulations, logic instruction, program design, language standards, group use of CAI, teacher-authored instruction, and "do-it-yourself programing." The concluding speaker noted that a very small amount of hard data was presented in the papers and emphasized that the fate of CAI will be determined by cost-benefit analysis. (MC)
