Teachers, Computer Tutors, and Teaching: The Artificially Intelligent Tutor as an Agent for Classroom Change.
Schofield, Janet Ward; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, v31 n3 p579-625 Fall 1994
A study of 79 high school students in 8 classes demonstrates that students consider a teacher more helpful than an artificially intelligent tutoring system but nevertheless prefer the tutor. Possible reasons for this paradox are discussed in the study, a reply, and a rejoinder discussing computer technology in the classroom. (SLD)
