In 1971 the National Science Foundation contracted with the MITRE Corporation (MIT Research Corporation) for the production of an experimental system to test the computer-assisted delivery of information and instruction to homes: the TICCIT system...
Educational Technology Vol. 33, No. 5 (1993) pp. 7–11
Discusses the development of computer-managed instruction (CMI) and possible changes for the future. Topics addressed include the management function; the current tutorial method that focuses on verbal learning; a closer relationship to performance...
Educational Technology Vol. 56, No. 4 (2016) pp. 34–37
This article asks five questions that lead us to the foundations of design practice in educational technology. Design processes structure time, space, place, activity, role, goal, and resource. For educational technology to advance in its...
ASCILITE - Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education Annual Conference 2013 (2013) pp. 888–892
This paper reports on the first phase of a wiki-based project in higher education in Thailand. The wiki innovation was focused on promoting collaborative learning. Previous literature on wikis shows that merely using a wiki, without teachers’...
Early Childhood Pre-Service Teachers' Perceptions of Teaching Technology to Children in Japan and the United States
Research in Comparative and International Education Vol. 5, No. 4 (2010) pp. 408–420
The purpose of the study was to examine early childhood education pre-service teachers' perceptions of the increasing role of new technologies in classroom environments. Given the growth in interest in a teacher's technological literacy, the...
Educational Technology Vol. 31, No. 11 (1991) pp. 7–15
The evaluator is an instructional system product that provides practice, testing capability, and feedback in a way not yet seen in computer-assisted instruction. Training methods using an evaluator contain scenario-based simulation exercises,...
Journal of Computing in Higher Education Vol. 28, No. 2 (2016) pp. 97–135
A theory of design layers proposed by Gibbons ("An Architectural Approach to Instructional Design." Routledge, New York, 2014) asserts that each layer of an instructional design is related to a body of theory closely associated with the...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 52, No. 2 (2004) pp. 57–68
Notational systems, used in mature fields of study, are closely related to design languages. The future of a technological field depends on the ability to communicate ideas and changes with others in the field. Instructional technology is one field...
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 24, No. 3 (2016) pp. 504–522
While research indicates that technology can be useful for supporting learning and collaboration, there is still relatively little uptake or widespread implementation of these technologies in classrooms. In this paper, we explore one aspect of the...
Educational Technology Research and Development Vol. 46, No. 2 (1998) pp. 110–16
Describes how a practical design question led to a reconsideration of the design process for problem-based instruction. Argues that this restructured process, called the "single-parse" design method, is of general value to designers. Discusses the...
