An Instructional Merger: HyperCard and the Integrative Teaching Model.
Massie, Carolyn M.; Volk, Larry G.
Teaching methods have been developed and tested that encourage students to process information and refine their thinking skills. The information processing model is known as the Integrative Teaching Model. By combining the computer technology in the HyperCard application for data display and retrieval, instructional delivery of this teaching model can be enhanced. Improved focus and attention of students are definite advantages gained when instructors use a hypermedia graphic organizer for the lesson's content. The instructor can also appreciate the subsequent data modification capabilities that HyperCard affords and the easy material storage of charts, maps, or graphs. For example, HyperCard can enhance a lesson plan on the interpretation of bar graphs and the conclusions that can be drawn from the information in bar graphs, by providing examples of such graphs and computer graphics of the sources the data are taken from.
