Abstract:

Five myths about computer-assisted instruction are persistent and confusing, especially to educational leaders attempting to understand computers and education. The five myths destroyed in the paper are a the teacher is the total instructor, b the CAI computer is designed for instruction, c there is one best CAI language for computer usage, d the biggest cost of CAI implementation is machinery, and e a lack of learning materials exists in CAI. The paper offers a framework for understanding, conceptualizing, and integrating major educational functions via information management system IMS. The proposed IMS has the following primary functions information retrieval of administrative and institutional data training requirements for personnel and computer support of instruction via computer-managed instruction, computer-assisted instruction, and learning simulations.
