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

12 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 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

Distance learning and the Reserve components by J Metzko( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes and evaluates Service plans to adopt distance learning (DL) technologies submitted in response to tasking by the Deputy Secretary of Defense. The evaluation includes consideration of information exchanged in joint-Service/OSD (Office of the Secretary of Defense) groups that have been reviewing Service training requirements and training technology. The evaluation of DL plans resulted in the following major findings: (1) DL has the potential to provide effective training and to reduce costs; (2) DL is little used by DoD today; (3) converting to DL requires sizable up-front investments; (4) the Services plan to convert about one in five courses to DL; (5) joint management of DL is needed to maximize savings; and (6) data gaps preclude intelligent DL investment decisions

Assessment of DoD job skill enhancement programs by J. D Fletcher( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to Congressional direction, an assessment was undertaken of programs developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) that can be made available to civilian organizations to provide immediate support and assistance to upgrade skills for better civilian employment opportunities. The assessment focuses on interactive courseware (ICW) programs and their transfer to non-DoD activities. Several initiatives have been undertaken by the DoD to effect this transfer, but three sets of issues remain to be resolved: (1) specific civilian instructional requirements must be articulated; (2) methods must be developed to overcome fundamental differences between instructional materials that support the warfighting missions of the DoD and the instructional needs of non-DoD activities; and (3) resources and responsibilities in non-DoD activities must be allocated for determining civilian requirements, modifying instructional content, reprogramming, marketing and producing, warehousing, and distributing materials
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)
Cognitive readiness : preparing for the unexpected by J. D Fletcher( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most predictable characteristic of military operations is their unpredictability. Anticipated operational requirements can be decomposed into specific tasks, conditions, and standards, but how should individuals, teams, and units prepare for the unexpected, which, by definition, cannot be anticipated? This matter is viewed as an aspect of cognitive readiness. Situation awareness, memory, transfer, meta-cognition, automaticity, problem solving, decision-making, mental flexibility and creativity, leadership, and emotion are considered as bases for ways in which we can prepare operational personnel to deal with the unexpected. Science and Technology (S & T) developments in cognitive theory, cognitive readiness assessment, training for cognitive readiness, and assessing the military value of training are needed to devise reliable techniques for ensuring cognitive readiness in this area
An overview of military training by J. D Fletcher( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military training means different things to different people. This document attempts to provide an overview of military training for people working in other areas of manpower, personnel, and instructional research. Military training uniquely emphasizes discipline, just-in- case preparation, and collective performance. Its relevance to other areas of personnel research are found in transferable products emanating from its research and development (R & D) investment; its contributions to instructional systems development (IDS); its techniques tor incorporating costs, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness in instructional assessment; and its concern with developing an engineering of instruction. The varieties of military training can be usefully classified into tour categories: residential training of individuals, residential training of collectives, unit training of individuals, and unit training of collectives. Simulation is a major component of individual and collective military training. Methodologies such as transfer effectiveness ratios and isoperformance assessment have been developed to identity cost-effectiveness tradeoffs in training simulations. Innovative techniques with constructivist overtones tor developing shared mental models, simulating military operations and tactical engagements, networking simulators, and providing after-action teed back have been developed tor conducting simulation-based military training. These techniques are shown to be applicable to a variety of training settings, needs, and issues inside and outside the military
Defense Workforce Training Programs by J. D Fletcher( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the amount and kinds of Department of Defense (DoD) interactive courseware (icw) programs that are candidates for transfer to the private sector. Candidates for transfer were identified through an analysis of the Defense Instructional Technology Information System (ditis). Out of 4,644 icw programs that have been reported to the ditis since its inception in May 1991, 2,718 were identified as having possible utility in the private sector. Of these 2,718 programs, 591 were computer-based instruction programs that run on the ms-dos operating system, 1,997 were computer-based instruction programs that run on the nos operating system and were prepared using the tutor authoring system, and 130 were interactive videodisc programs that run on the ms-dos operating system. Final determination of the transferability of these programs will depend on more authoritative reviews of suitability, legality, and security; reviews that must be undertaken on a case-by-case basis. The DoD has taken several initiatives to assist the private sector in transferring DoD icw programs to the civilian workforce for training. However, a number of issues, particularly those involving the availability of resources and the establishment of responsibilities, must be resolved before comprehensive procedures for transfer can be implemented successfully. Six tables and four figures provide details about the programs and the transfer process. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/SLD)
