Computer games and instruction ( )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 675 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 9 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

An overview of military training by J. D Fletcher ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 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
Computer-based aids for learning, job performance, and decision-making in military applications : emergent technology and challenges by Robert E Foster ( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 6 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)

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 5 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

Defense Workforce Training Programs by J. D Fletcher ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report discusses the amount and kinds of DoD interactive courseware (ICW) programs that are candidates for transfer to the private sector. The Defense Instructional Technology Information System (DITIS) was analyzed to identify ICW programs that are candidates for transfer from the DoD to the private sector. Out of 4644 ICW programs that have been reported to DITIS since its inception in May 1991, 2718 were identified as having possible utility in meeting private sector training requirements. Of these 2718 programs, 591 were computer-based instruction programs that run on the MS-DOS operating system, 1997 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 suitability, legal, 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, particulary those involving the availability of resources and the establishment of responsibilities, must be resolved before a comprehensive set of procedures for transfer can be successfully implemented
Effectiveness and Cost Benefits of Computer-Based Decision Aids for Equipment Maintenance ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Data are summarized from assessments of three computer-based aids-Computer-Based Maintenance Aids System (CMAS), Portable Electronic Aid for Maintenance (PEAM), and Integrated Maintenance Information System (IMIS)-intended to support problem solving in maintenance operations. All three were shown to increase accuracy and to reduce errors and time required for maintenance operations. Cost benefits were reported for IMIS, which produced net savings of about $20 M per year in maintaining three F-16 avionics subsystems. The findings suggest that (a) a strong cost-effectiveness case can be made for the computer-based aids, (b) their development and implementation should consider the full range of options available for ensuring competent human performance, (c) both descriptive and prescriptive approaches should be employed in their design, (d) they should incorporate capabilities developed for intelligent tutoring systems, and (e) their absence from routine use despite their demonstrated value suggests that more effort is needed to ensure that the state-of-practice advances in maintenance operations along with the state of the art
