Reactive Learning Environment for Computer Assisted Electronics Instruction.
Brown, John Seely; And Others
This report describes the development of several new computer based strategies for teaching troubleshooting principles to electronics technicians. The computer programs to implement these strategies were developed in part from software produced in previous contracts. The report documents an experiment in which those materials were presented to student technicians to determine their attitudes toward the techniques, and to determine whether the training resulted in improvement of their technical skills. Results in both cases were positive with students responding very favorably to the materials and with their performance improving quantitatively and qualitatively after the instruction. The computer based techniques used are explained and examples of student interaction with the materials are included in the report. Copies of the tutorial materials used in conjunction with the on-line computer presentations are presented in an appendix. (Author)
