Don't Program Your World--PLAN* It!
Johnson, Geraldine W.
PLAN is a computer-managed individualized learning program with two major goals: to provide each child with an individualized program of studies in the language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies and to involve students in making decisions and assuming responsibility for their own learning. A computer assists the teacher by scoring and analyzing tests, recording student progress, and providing daily objectives for learning. Teachers spend most of their time tutoring and counseling students on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, during which time Teaching Learning Units (TLU's) are introduced. A TLU states the objective the child will work toward, lists the materials he or she will use, and prescribes the activities he or she will perform in order to achieve the objective. Some learning activities require students to work in small groups, while others require them to work alone. When a child feels that he or she has mastered the objective of a TLU, the child is tested individually and measured against his or her own potential. (LL)
