Self-Managed Learning Using CAI.
Jacobson, Eric; Thompson, Murray
Student control of learning is interpreted as student self-teaching, and a plan to give students teacher training is outlined. The first step of the plan is self-management in which the students are given a strategy for curriculum decision making and have the reponsibility for applying that strategy. Two interactive computer programs are included as instructional alternatives within the self-management system on the rationale that computers are responsive yet still under student control and are therefore uniquely adapted for self-controlled learning environments. Students in fourth and fifth grade were able to effectively manage their learning in elementary mathematics and apparently learned faster and retained material better then a comparative group of students.
