Evaluating Children's Learning Disabilities with an Apple II Personal Computer or Tempting Poor Learners with an Apple.
Sisson, Lee Hansen; And Others
This paper describes the use of commercially-available software for the Apple Computer to augment diagnostic evaluations of learning disabled children and to enhance "learning to learn" strategies at the application/transfer level of learning. A short rationale discusses levels of evaluation and learning, using a model that synthesizes the ideas of Robert Gagne, Benjamin Bloom, Hilda Taba, and J. R. Gifford. Two case studies of children with learning disabilities describe a 7-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy who were evaluated through computer programs to assess their learning difficulties and who were provided with learning experiences through computer assisted instruction. A listing of 59 educational software programs includes approximate price, producer/distributor with address, grade level(s), and brief comments for each. (LMM)
