Abstract : The report contains a description and summary of computer augmented learning devices and systems. The devices are of two general types: programmed instruction systems based on the teaching machines pioneered by Pressey and developed by Skinner, and the so-called 'docile' systems that permit greater user-direction with the computer under student control. Even sympathetic criticisms by practitioners reveal limited understanding of the psychology of learning and knowing, expose potential restrictions to adequate selection of computer-based curricula, and recognize technical hazards that impede the development of effective computerized educational tools.
