Mission of the Future. Proceedings of the Annual Convention of the Association for the Development of Computer-Based Instructional Systems. Volume II: Special Interest Groups (San Diego, California, February 27 to March 1, 1979).
Association for the Development of Computer-based Instructional Systems.
The second of three volumes of papers presented at the 1979 ADCIS convention, this collection includes 37 papers presented to four special interest groups--computer based training, deaf education, elementary/secondary education/junior colleges, and health education. The eight papers on computer based training describe computer graphics, computer supported graphics, and simulations in military training; CBI in flight instruction; a new self-paced course on BASIC language programming; and CMI in vocational education. The ten papers scheduled for the educators of the deaf are concerned not only with projects for teaching language/communication and writing skills to the deaf, but with access to CAI for the blind and visually handicapped, and programs in special education. Projects described for the elementary/secondary/junior colleges group focused on curriculum development, classroom applications, CAI in special education, attitudes of high school students toward the computer, CMI in a large school system, a program for functionally illiterate adults, and a survey course in computer science in a community college. The health interest group heard nine papers on various aspects of medical training using CAI, simulations, computerized tests, and a set of computer self-evaluation units designed to accompany a physiology course. Some papers are illustrated with flow charts and diagrams and/or include brief bibliographies. (RAO)
