Teaching and Learning with Computer-Based Instruction



This paper is based on data collected from New York City's Computer Pilot Program, an on-going investigation of the use of comprehensive computer based instruction (CBI) programs in the basic skills remediation of educationally disadvantaged students in grades 3-12. The findings suggest that the use of comprehensive CBI is altering the ways in which teachers teach and students learn: (1) CBI classrooms were more student-centered and cooperative than regular classroom environments; (2) teachers were more the facilitators of learning and learning was more individualized when computers were involved; and (3) students were more motivated and less threatened when learning on computers than when learning in regular classrooms.
