Christensen, Dean L.; Tennyson, Robert D.
This paper presents a perspective of the current state of technology-assisted instruction integrating computer language, artificial intelligence (AI), and a review of cognitive science applied to instruction. The following topics are briefly discussed: (1) the language of instructional technology, i.e., programming languages, including authoring systems; (2) technology assisted instruction using AI, including the formal study of AI in computer science and current applications of AI in education, industry, and high-technology fields; (3) AI principles applied to instruction, including the three components of the operational functions of an AI system, i.e., expertise module, student-model module, and tutoring module; and (4) a cognitive science paradigm applied to instruction, including computer based instructional (CBI) characteristics of systems that exhibit elements of machine intelligence and the development and characteristics of the MAIS (Minnesota Adaptive Instructional System).
