Technology for the Gifted and Talented. 1985 Digest.
The digest examines issues related to the use of technology with gifted and talented students. Computer assisted instruction (CAI) is seen to develop decision making skills and foster independent learning. Applications of four types of CAI to gifted students are explored: drill practice, tutorials, games, and simulations. The use of computers in helping students develop thinking skills is considered, and the impact of computers on creativity, higher level cognitive skills, and problem solving skills is discussed. A final computer application, as a tool for facilitating independent learning, is explored in terms of data processing for student research, word processing, art and music creation, authoring systems, and networking.
