Use of Tape Recorders and Computers in Literacy Tutoring.
Henderson, F. R.
Tape recorders and computers can be useful in literacy tutoring in three situations. The situations are (1) as an aid in regular tutoring sessions, (2) as a supplement to provide drill and practice, and (3) as a management tool. Samples of these uses include tape recordings of reading assignments for students to take home and study; a computer program that teaches the alphabet, numerals, and the keyboard; and phonics computer programs. Although tape recorders are fairly inexpensive and therefore accessible, computers may only be available in schools, libraries, and so on. Used and new computer hardware can also be purchased.
