Report on the Instructional Use of the Computer. Vol. 3, Scope.
The extent to which computers are presently used for instructional purposes is surveyed. The evaluation of computers and the more recent development of computers for education are traced. The growth of computer-assisted instruction centers and instructional computer languages is described. Computers, terminals, telecommunications, computer languages, and course programs are reviewed with respect to the equipment presently available in Canada, the United States, and France. Examples are given of the many types of computer terminals in use. Next, the classifications of computer use are illustrated by current examples. Each of the major areas of use--laboratory tool, instructional management tool, and teaching instrument--is treated separately. Finally, organizations and associations involved in the instructional use of computers are listed and described. (WH)
