Comparing the Use of Computers with Traditional Print in Reading Instruction: What the Research Says.
Tzung-yu, Cheng
Studies comparing computer-assisted instruction with traditional print were reviewed in order to determine what researchers have discovered about using computers in reading. The research findings were then compared and integrated through using the following five categories: interaction, attitude, instructional control, time on task, and efficiency. Most studies indicate that the subjects are more interactive with, and positive toward, computers. Computers help monitor successful learning. Computer groups spend more time on task; however, this is due to the special features used in computers. No definite answer supported either mode of presentation in efficiency. However, the review suggests that the quality of software and hardware may influence computer efficiency and more studies are needed in different instructional situations and subject areas.
