Integrating CAI and Videotape for Science and Mathematics Teaching.
Ignatz, Mila E.; Ignatz, Milton
Computer assisted instruction (CAI) provides active and non-linear instruction, but the microcomputer-videotape combination permits development of a broader range of instructional activities not previously possible with microcomputers alone. Instructional materials can be displayed alternately from the microcomputer or the videocassette recorder-player, depending on instructional program design needs. Moving and colorful visual materials, actual pictures, spoken descriptions, instructions, and music can now be added to CAI. The integration of the computer and the video player offers the advantages of incorporating actual lectures, demonstrations, and experiments into the CAI lessons; using the same, though modified, database to utilize different learning strategies for individual students; and grouping students conveniently to review or repeat lessons or presentations. Furthermore, computer programs and videotapes are easier to revise, update, or modify than videodisc programs. Because of these advantages, several institutions and organizations are applying interactive video in courseware development, including Florida A and M University, where a project has been implemented to develop and evaluate instructional materials for science and mathematics which utilize interactive video systems. This report includes flowcharts illustrating two types of instructional strategies incorporating CAI with videotape and nine references. (LMM)
