The Learning Disabled and Computer Based Education: Program Design Strategies. CREATE Monograph Series.
Rubin, David; And Others
Third in a series of six monographs on the use of new technologies in the instruction of learning disabled students, the paper explores program design strategies for computer-based instructional materials. Section 1 summarizes ideas related to models of perception and cognition, theories of instruction, and key characteristics of intelligent technologies. Section 2 analyzes the instructional effectiveness of two specific pieces of effective educational software ("Mastertype" and "Spelling Bee Games'" in terms of the ideas developed in Section 1. A final section discusses implications of these ideas for future research on the design of computer-based instruction. (JW)
