Learning, in turn, is defined in terms of behavioral associationism. Thus, the problem of specifying an instructional program so as to lead to effective control of student learning as directl...

The instructional areas covered are: elementary school, high school, special education, armed forces, and industrial use. There is no attempt to evaluate the research designs used in the studies, as this vital point was not within th... View full abstract»

    Many techniques, audio and video, are available for projecting a lecturer's performance to a large audience, but techniques for feedback from audience to lecturer are almost totally lacking. The return communication link, if available, would be an important factor in the performances of lecturer and audience, hence in the educational process. An experiment using 30 students for a semester is descr... View full abstract»

    The theory of learning indicates that students would learn more efficiently if they were reinforced as soon as they made the correct response to a new concept. A simple device (MARI) for giving students immediate reinforcement within a class period was designed, built, and tested in actual classrooms. Not only would MARI reinforce the student when he made the correct answer but it would also indic... View full abstract»
