Computer Assisted Instruction and Cognitive Development in Preschoolers.
Shute, Rosalyn; Miksad, John
Child Study Journal, v27 n3 p237-53 1997
Compared the use of microcomputers, providing either substantial or minimal scaffolding, to traditional resources on preschoolers' cognitive development over eight weeks. Found that computer assisted instruction software increased verbal and language skills, but not math skills, and only as a function of substantial scaffolding. Software with substantial scaffolding features increased general cognitive ability more than minimally scaffolded instruction. (Author/KB)
