Changing the Education System with CALM: Computer Assisted Learning Method
Desouza, Romualdo T.; McClean, Cheryl L.; Berger, Paulette
Phi Delta Kappan, v89 n7 p497-500 Mar 2008
Over the past decade, at both the university and high school levels, chemistry instructors have become keenly aware of an increasing number of students who are proving to be unable to solve complex problems. Today's students have grown up with technology, and most would prefer to do their homework using a digital tool rather than pencil and paper. Those students who do try to work out pencil-and-paper problems can become easily frustrated if they encounter difficulties and are unable to get immediate, useful feedback. In this article, the authors introduce a novel online learning tool called CALM (Computer Assisted Learning Method). CALM was originally intended for use in a university setting. Its adoption in high schools provides a good example of the kind of cross-level cooperation that a P-16 system would make possible. (Contains 1 endnote.)
