Strategies for Computer Assisted Learning

Masters Thesis, King's College London.

This essay discusses some strategies for using the computer as an aid to learning. In order to set the discussion in context, some views of the education scene are outlined in terms of pupil's learning and cognition, the teacher-pupil relationship and the role of the computer in the learning process. Three examples of strategies for computer assisted learning are described and the arguments for and against each reviewed in terms of the education scene outlined.

"The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one's devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life." — Norman Cousins, 1954
