Computer Applications in Science Education. The Illinois Series on Educational Application of Computers, No. 17e.
Gaede, Owen F.; Singletary, Ted J.
This paper provides a summary of information and ideas relevant to the use of computers in science education, describes a variety of uses and strategies, discusses advantages and disadvantages of specific applications, and explores the decision-making process surrounding computer instruction implementation. Uses and strategies which are described include laboratory assistance, simulations, tutorial lessons, drill and practice, and testing. Each of these areas ends with a list of suggested study activities. No attempt is made to teach programming, for this paper presupposes that the reader possesses some skill in either BASIC or FORTRAN, or a language of a similar structure. Appendices contain a listing of a test statistics program and a test item analysis program, and a brief bibliography is attached. (Author/CMV)
