How The Computer Can Bring The Teacher and Student Closer Together.
Conord, A. E.
Two computer-assisted courses taught at the United States Naval Academy, one in French and one in Computer Science, illustrate the ability of the computer to help teachers and students develop closer, more humanized relationships. In both courses the computer's basic role is to amplify the instructor's capabilities. Relying on its ability to process data at a high speed, the computer can be employed to store information, present assignments, conduct evaluations and provide immediate feedback. In addition to motivating students and helping them to diagnose their own needs, this last function also makes it possible for the instructor to modify his instructional plans in accordance with the progress to date of his students. Since the machine also relieves the teacher of much routine work it therefore provides him with the time as well as the information needed to design better instruction, thus promoting closer teacher-student ties.
