Widmer, Connie Carroll
This paper discusses the types of computer software that are most effective in a classroom. Detailed descriptions are given of: (1) drill and practice programs; (2) tutorials; (3) simulations; and (4) games and problem-solving software. The effectiveness of each is discussed as well as the characteristics of a good program of its genre. An example of how each program operates is given and the academic benefits are considered. The principles and examples of these programs offer guidelines for teachers in selecting good educational software for the classroom. (JD)
