Designing Instruction for Teaching with a Computer. The Illinois Series on Educational Application of Computers, No. 3e.
Alessi, Stephen M.; Dennis, J. Richard
A review of the major components of lesson planning and two conventional planning methods provides background for this explanation of the type of planning required when designing instruction for teaching with the computer. This "formal planning" includes the identification and articulation of the locical sequencing of both instructional events and instructional decisions, and planning sequences are nonlinear, taking a flowchart form, rather than being tightly tied to the days of the week. Discussion of the factors involved in formal planning includes decisions as instructional events, sequencing based on decisions, the organization of formal planning, and consturcting the flowchart; examples of first and second drafts of a flowchart for a series of lessons teaching the computer language BASIC are provided. This document was designed as a resource for preservice and inservice teacher training, and a study activity is provided, as well as a list of seven references. (CMV)
