The role of computing in human learning will increase in the foreseeable future. Yet no one is certain how great this role will eventually be, or exactly what form it will finally take.
Everyone with an interest in education and tutor software should read such writings since they present what has already been accomplished. Whether one seeks merely to learn about the field or determine the point from which to begin one’s own research and work, knowing what has already been accomplished is the first step. However, simply plunging intoplunging into the field and tryingdeas may not work. Initially some conceptual help You may need some conceptual help to get started.
Introducing a diverse and technically unfamiliar area of computing in education
Even individuals who are both computer specialists and educators can find that computing applications to education encompass a wide range of complex activities. For a newcomer to computing, such a complex subject can be very confusing at first. Three steps are taken here to minimize the unnecessary confusion. As a result, there is a limitation on the diversity of information presented, since the number of authors is limited. A second benefit of featuring only articulate speakers is that the issues and the work discussed are presented in an understandable manner. Third, by providing a succinct framework (tutor / tool / tutee) for categorizing all educational computing, the book gives the reader a framework for gaining a better understanding of a rather chaotic range of activities.
This introductory essay is primarily intended to introduce the tutor / tool / tutee strategic framework. This section presents a brief overview of each of the five authors and their comments. The implementation of the framework is then demonstrated, through the work of these five authors. In order to assist the reader in better understanding the context of the author’s work, a biographical sketch precedes the presentation of that author’s articles. An author biography is provided at the end of the book for those interested in reading more about that author’s work
* Tutor, Tool, Tutee * Three Ways to Use Computers in Education
In order to understand computing’s application in education, a framework is presented that looks at all computer use in such applications as falling into one of three categories. Computers are often used as tutors. They can also be used as tools. Thirdly, the computer generates a student’s paycheck.
Computers as tutors
The computer must be programmed by “experts” in that subject and in programming in order to function as a tutor. After the computer executes the program(s), the student is tutored by Students are presented with some subject material, the computer evaluates their response, and then, based on the evaluation, decides what to present next. present next. At its best, the computer tutor keeps complete comprehensive records of each student being tutored; it provides a wide range of subject detail it can present; and it has a flexible and extensive way to test and then guideent through the material. With appropriatA computer tutor can easily and swiftly adapt its presentation to fit a wide range of student differences by using well-designed software.
