Computer Assistance in Foreign Language Instruction: Problems, Possibilities and Payoffs.
Milstein, Barney M.; O'Brien, George M.
At the 1976 annual meeting of the AATG, a workshop session on computer-aided language instruction (CALI) was held. Hands-on experience was the primary purpose of the session; but essential to such involvement were presentations of the various modes of CALI and discussion of the accomplishments to be expected and the caveats. A fully developed language course component, "Programmed-German," developed by and used at the University of Minnesota for students throughout the state was discussed, as were the computer techniques individual instructors may develop for their specific teaching needs.
