Abstract:

The report describes a National Shipbuilding Research Program investigation into the feasibility of using interactive instructional technologies to teach shipyard skilled trades. Interactive instruction evokes the active involvement of each trainee in his or her own computer-controlled audio-visual instruction. It exchanges information with the trainee on a personal basis, processes the trainee s responses to generate appropriate rewards or remediation, and measures, evaluates, and documents the trainee s learning performance. Project investigators reviewed the interactive multimedia industry and surveyed American shipyards to determine what trades are being taught, and if Interactive multimedia are being used. The report provides an overview of interactive instruction, including its applications and cost-effectiveness describes the characteristics of shipyard trade training identifies commercial interactive courseware applicable to trade training discusses the potential use of authoring systems by shipyards provides guidance for the integration of interactive instruction into existing shipyard training programs and concludes with detailed recommendations for the development of a two-lesson demonstration of interactive instruction for trade training to be presented to shipyard management and training personnel.
