Instructional Technology in the Department of Defense, Now and in the Future.
Rose, M. Richard
Because the Department of Defense spends more than $7 billion annually on training and educational opportunities, new instructional technologies are constantly explored in an attempt to make education and training more cost effective. Technologies which have been tried include: (1) instructional systems based on behavioral objectives; (2) instructional systems augmented by computer and audiovisual technology; (3) learner centered instructional research; (4) instructional television; (5) cable television; (6) miniature computers/microprocessors; (7) holography; (8) rapid transmission and storage system; (9) satellite communication; (10) computer-assisted instruction; (11) computer-managed instruction; (12) simulations; and (13) wired garrison concept. By combining these technologies in proportions which most effectively meet the educational needs of the armed services, and by pooling available instructional resources and delivery systems to avoid redundancy, the military can enhance the quality of the personnel while reducing unit costs for education. This report briefly describes each of these technologies, and suggests applications in military training programs. (EMH)
