An Evaluative Review of Uses of Computers in Instruction, Project CLUE (Computer Learning Under Evaluation). Final Report.
Zinn, Karl L.
Project CLUE (Computer Learning Under Evaluation) was an extensive review of the state of the art of the instructional uses of computers. Students, laymen, administrators and teachers will find the first volume of the two volume final report directed to their needs. The introduction discusses the scope of computer uses considered and a timetable of project activities. Next offered is an overview of computer usage, including history, current aspects, and future trends, and guidelines for using the computer. Appendixes provide a guide to information sources, descriptions of representative projects, samples of instructional programs, a definition of the domain of Project CLUE, and a glossary. Volume II, directed toward computer scientists and researchers, contains six position statements on: operations and costs, computer-based learning materials, programing languages, evaluation of materials and strategy, research on instruction and learning, and documentation and distribution of materials. These statements are generated from literature and experts in the various fields. Bibliographies provide sources of statements and dissemination activities, list other projects contacted, suggest activities for professionals, and offer notes on computer system design for instructional uses.
