Assessment of Computer Assisted Instruction as a Tool for Advancing Adult Learning.
This discussion of the efficacy of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) for advancing adult learning is based on the assumptions underlying pedagogy (child learning) versus andragogy (adult learning). Pedagogy versus andragogy is discussed first with respect to the prevalent design of CAI devices. Other topics covered are assumptions of andragogy and implications for CAI, versatility of the computer, and implications for further research on the interactive configuration of CAI and the nature of the adult learner.
