Computer Assisted Instruction in Agricultural Education.
Hudson, C. Jordan
Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) is discussed briefly as it might apply to agricultural education in order to supplement both text and teacher. CAI format is shown in a typical tutorial program used to help students understand basic concepts of work, power, horsepower, and torque. The author points out other instructional uses of CAI, such as collection and treatment of data; sharing of programs with other teachers; teaching logic; testing to the maximum level of student ability; generation of exams, simulations, and games; and graphics. CAI's most important feature, the author contends, is the interaction--the provision of immediate, relevant feedback to the student. (CP)
