Computer games and instruction by J. D Fletcher( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is intense interest in computer games. A total of 65 percent of all American households play computer games, and sales of such games increased 22.9 percent last year. The average amount of game playing time was found to be 13.2 hours per week. The popularity and market success of games is evident from both the increased earnings from games, over $7 Billion in 2005, and from the fact that over 200 academic institutions worldwide now offer game related programs of study. In view of the intense interest in computer games educators and trainers, in business, industry, the government, and the military would like to use computer games to improve the delivery of instruction. Computer Games and Instruction is intended for these educators and trainers. It reviews the research evidence supporting use of computer games, for instruction, and also reviews the history of games in general, in education, and by the military. In addition chapters examine gender differences in game use, and the implications of games for use by lower socio-economic students, for students' reading, and for contemporary theories of instruction. Finally, well known scholars of games will respond to the evidence reviewed

Computer Applications in Education and Training: Status and Trends by J. D Fletcher( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Updating information on various developmental efforts in computer-based training, this report provides information on new developments that may have implications for Navy training. Although projects in the military services are emphasized, major developments in the civilian sector are also reviewed. The range of activities emphasizes the use of computers for teaching and includes a wide variety of computer aids to instruction. Information for this report was gathered from reports supported under a Navy contract and from a continuing survey of other developments in computer-based instruction. It is organized under five major topic headings: (1) military activities, (2) civilian activities, (3) systems developments, (4) current issues in instructional design, and (5) state-of-the-art and Navy training needs. An overview is provided for each of the major topic areas as well as for many subtopic areas. A supporting bibliography is also included. (Author/DGC)

Technology, the Columbus effect, and the third revolution in learning by J. D Fletcher( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing and printed books have influenced learning profoundly. The emergence of writing brought about a revolution in learning by freeing learners from requirements for face-to-face interaction with sages and other human sources of knowledge, lore, and information. Although learning became neither inexpensive nor universally available after the development of written language, its content became available anytime, anywhere. A second revolution occurred with the development of moveable type and books. These developments also made the content of learning, teaching, and educational materials available anytime, anywhere but more widely and, significantly, less expensively. Can we improve on books? Computer technology arises as a possibility. Computers can adapt the sequence and type of operations they perform to the conditions of the moment. In instruction, they can adapt the content, sequence, type, difficulty, granularity, and so forth of their presentations to learners or problem solvers based on ongoing, dynamic assessments of their individual needs. For this reason, computer technology may be effecting a third revolution in learning. While preserving the capabilities of books to present the content of instruction anytime, anywhere, computers can also provide the interactions of teachers, instructors, tutors, and mentors as needed by individual learners and users. This is not something books, movies, television, or videotape technologies can do affordably or to any significant degree. By presenting the content and the interactions of instruction, computers promise a new and significant capability for learning that is available anytime, anywhere. This capability may produce a third revolution in learning, with a significance equal to that of the development of writing and books
Computer-based aids for learning, job performance, and decision-making in military applications : emergent technology and challenges by Robert E Foster( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology-based systems for education, training, and performance-aiding (including decision-aiding) may pose the ultimate test for validating approaches to integrate humans with automated systems. These systems need to model students and users. The models they generate, as well as the interactions based on them, must adapt to the evolving knowledge and skills of individual students and users. Evaluation findings suggest that such adaptations are feasible, worthwhile, and cost effective. Data drawn from many evaluations of technology-based education and training indicate overall that these systems can reduce costs by one-third and that they can also either reduce the time to achieve instructional objectives by one-third or increase achievement (holding time constant) by one-third. The likely impact on military readiness and effectiveness suggested by these findings is significant. Evaluations of technology-based performance aiding systems have suggested similar results of increased personnel effectiveness and cost-savings. They suggest a need to determine and readjust the balance between resources allocated to training and resources allocated to performance-aiding systems. Development of sharable, reusable objects and capabilities for assembling these objects on demand and in real time will substantially increase accessibility and will reduce costs of education, training, and performance-aiding while making them asynchronously and continuously available regardless of distance and time. Specifications and capabilities for such objects are the goals of much current research and development (R & D)
