Hall, Keith A.
This revision of the annotated bibliography, "Computer-Based Education: The Best of ERIC, June 1976-August 1980," includes 224 new entries as well as most of the 156 ERIC documents and journal articles originally cited. The new materials reflect the increased activity in the field with contributions about new technology (artificial intelligence, authoring systems, and interactive video technology), new audiences (adult, off-campus learners, and incarcerated learners), content applications (guidance and career and vocational information, mathematics, computer science, data analysis, statistics, and reading), developmental efforts with PLATO, and basic research. Outstanding growth areas identified include applications for exceptional learners and the teaching of writing and computer literacy; development efforts with LOGO; research on problem solving; computer managed intstruction, computer assisted testing, and instructional simulations; and courseware evaluation. Other new areas include business and industry, museum audiences, geology, and study skills. Increasing interest in microcomputers is reflected in sections on technology applications for specific content and audiences. A brief introduction discusses instructional methods included in computer-based education, explains the subject headings used in the bibliography, and briefly describes the new materials added to this edition. An author index is provided, as well as information for ordering ERIC documents. (BBM)
