Hughett, Harvey L.
The first half of this book focuses on the rationale, ideas, and information for the use of technology, including microcomputers, to improve language teaching efficiency. Topics discussed include foreign language computer assisted instruction (CAI), hardware and software selection, computer literacy, educational computing organizations, ease of operation, keeping up with CAI developments, microcomputer reliability, interactive video, timesharing mainframe computer versus microcomputers, and research on CAI effectiveness. The five supporting articles reproduced here are: (1) "Drill Programming Consideration" (James P. Pusack); (2) "A CALI Glossary for Beginners" (Randall L. Jones); (3) "Computer-Based Foreign Language Instruction in Illinois Schools" (Robert L. Blomeyer, Jr.); (4)"Montevidisco: An Anecdotal History of an Interactive Videodisc" (Larrie E. Gale); (5) "Stringing Us Along: Programming for Foreign Language CAI" (Sue K. Otto and James P. Pusack); and (6) "Using Microcomputer Word Processors for Foreign Languages" (Kim L. Smith). A description of the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO) and a 38-item reference list are included. (LMM)
