Abstract:

This report summarizes the state of the art of auto-instruction and teaching devices and catalogs instructional devices to April 1961, in the interest of suggesting possible applications to local training or educational problems. The first section briefly reviews what auto-instruction is, whether it is an entirely new concept, its practical benefits, auto-instruction terminology, programs and devices, current programming formats, evaluating a program, and discusses prospects for the future of auto-instruction. The second section catalogs and describes all major current auto-instructional devices: Skinner machines, Pressey machines, Crowder technique, self-organizing systems, audio-visual machines, digital computers as teaching machines, and miscellaneous devices. A list of teaching machine patents is appended.
