A Computer Resource for the Elementary School. Progress Report 1971-1972.
Block, Karen K.; And Others
The appropriate and effective uses of the computer in an individualized school were examined in this project. The project investigated the uses of computers for instructional assistance, including testing, management, tutorial instruction, drill and practice, exploration and discovery, and problem solving; the design of a small computer time-sharing system with a multi-language capability, and the processes underlying developmental work in computer-assisted instruction. A small mobile computer system was used at the Oakleaf Elementary School in Baldwin-Whitehall, Pennsylvania, to test the program components; computer system design; computer-assisted testing; computer-assisted instruction in spelling, mathematics, and problem solving techniques; and computer-assisted management. Plans for 1972-73 were presented for each area, with considerations for determining the computer's potential. (PS)
