What curriculum for the information age? by Mary Alice White( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2020 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was developed from a conference held at Teachers College, Columbia University, in 1986. It highlights issues in learning and instruction in the information age and the changes in the structure of the curriculum and the style of classroom instruction. The contributors discuss how schools can escape the present limits of printbound learning, and describe the role of technology in education, including training for educators, reducing inequities in technology rich educational settings, and changes to make technology more productive. The volume concludes with suggestions for recording the curriculum to emphasize skills, to evaluate information, set priorities, and make decisions. ISBN 0-89859-9: $19.95

School disorder, intelligence, and social class by Mary Alice White( Book )

10 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to assess the variables related to pupil maladjustment and to determine whether differential treatment was accorded to the maladjusted pupils on the basis of these variables. The population consisted of 2,866 pupils referred to westchester county, new york, school psychologists. Data were obtained from questionnaires distributed to each school psychologist and from county census tracts. It was hypothesized that the sample of pupils would have, as compared with the total school population, lower socioeconomic status (ses), lower intelligence, higher ratio of boys to girls, lower achievement level, and higher proportion of referrals of pupils in the elementary grades. It was also hypothesized that subpopulations would be created along these variables as the sample population moved from referral to final disposition. A notable finding of the study was that school disorder was more related to low iq than to low ses. Moreover, pupils with higher iq, ses, and achievement levels formed a subpopulation characterized as "emotionally disturbed." These pupils received mental health services. Pupils with lower iq, ses, and achievement levels were characterized as "educationally disturbed" and received only educational services. Hypotheses concerning the maladjusted pupils' sex and level of achievement were supported. The age/grade level prediction was partially sustained. This document is available from teachers college press, teachers college, columbia university, new york, new york. (Lb)

Improving teaching on television : the utility of direct instructional principles by Michael O'Loughlin( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To examine the influences of direct instructional principles on student learning, this study compared the results of using two different versions of an instructional television program. One version consisted of a randomly-selected itv science program from the Educational Broadcasting Corporation's science series, "Odyssey," while the second version was a revision of the original program in which the commentary had been altered to conform more closely to the principles of direct instruction. These principles include (1) provision of clear goals; (2) extensive content coverage; (3) easy-to-difficult sequencing; (4) reviews; and (5) cues for attention-focusing. Subjects were 283 children from four lower-middle class fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. Results showed that the experimental group, who viewed the revised program, performed significantly better on a content test. It was concluded that the direct instructional model deserves further consideration. (Lmm)

An Educated View of Technology by Mary Alice White( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For education to respond to the new technologies that offer tools for mind expansion, the concept of information itself must be redefined. Instruction via electronic sources is a very different way of learning than instruction by print: electronic instruction is highly interactive, under the user's control, and full of imagery. Imagery is the language of the information age, and students should be trained to decode images and comprehend them. The basic skills needed for the information age will include the ability to evaluate the quality of information, and the ability to comprehend imagery. If schools do not reconceptualize themselves as institutions that are being transformed by the information technologies, they will lose their position as the major educators within our society and their place will be usurped by museums, libraries, shopping centers, and offices. Schools need to educate as though the technological revolution were the most important change in learning since the printing press, which indeed it may be. (Jb)
Differences Between Children and Adults in Learning Basic on Microcomputers by Renee Hamada-Adler( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do children and adults who are novices in their use of microcomputers differ in their approaches when learning a computer language? Ten fourth- and fifth-grade students and 10 graduate students were observed learning the language basic on microcomputers. All sessions were tape recorded and verbalizations subsequently coded. Verbalizations, the number of computer operations executed, and the percentage of responses which were correct were compared for the two groups. The pattern of verbalizations was strikingly similar for children and adults. Monitoring and checking statements accounted for almost half of total verbal output, and questions to the examiner accounted for one quarter. Adults, more often than children, expressed negative comments about the computer. Although computer output for adults was greater than for children, there was no significant difference in the percentage of correct responses for the two groups. Possible explanations for these performance similarities and for the potential of the computer as an equalizer between young and old are discussed. (Author)
