Home-Based Education: Needs and Technological Opportunities.
Macken, E.; And Others
The report consists of three major sections: a review of the literature on correspondence education in the United States, a report of research at Stanford University on computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in the home, and an extensive cross-referenced annotated bibliography. The literature review is organized under six main subsections: enrollment trends, factors influencing completion rates, characteristics of correspondence students, correspondence work versus residence work, course presentation methods, and a partially annotated bibliography of references cited in the review. In the described home-based experimental CAI program for gifted junior high school students, 28 students were able to receive courses in elementary and college logic, computer programing, and foreign languages via teletypewriters placed in their homes and linked by the home telephone line to the computer. The bibliography, covering the home-based instructional uses of computers, television, and other media, has three subsections. The first is the annotated bibliography which contains references divided into five groups: computers in education, television and videotape, multimedia, nontraditional study, and reference materials. The second subsection assigns to each reference a list of descriptors appropriate to it. The third subsection assigns to each descriptor the appropriate references. (Author/MS)
