Report on the Instructional Use of the Computer. Vol. 1, Types of Uses.
Chevalier, Guy; Gateau, Bernard
The different uses of computers in education were surveyed. Three major uses were defined: as a laboratory tool, as an instructional management tool, and as a teaching instrument. As a laboratory tool the computer is used as electronic equipment, a calculator, an automaton, a simulator, and a research and development tool. Instructional management uses are divided into information banks, testing aids (answer processing, test generation, and individualized testing), and computer-managed instruction. As a teaching instrument the computer can be used for drill and practice, tutorial work, or dialog. In each use classification, the application is presented, examples are given, instructional and technical aspects discussed, and experiments cited. Volume 1 gives the classification scheme that forms the foundation for volumes 2 and 3. (WH)
