Drill and Practice

the simplest level of CAI. students have already learned information, either through computer programs or other teaching methods, and are now presented with repetition and application of the information.

the second mode in which CAI may be written teaches the students a body of knowledge by presenting information and asking questions, giving hints if the student gets stuck.

just as board games, card games and trivia games can be used to teach nursing, so can computer games.

One of the most exciting and available forms of CAI. Provide students with all details about a particular patient situation and ask them to assess the patient, arrive at diagnoses, plan interventions and evaluate care.

CAI for Patient Education

Three forces of urgency to the delivery of patient education:
- expectation of accreditation organizations - the increase in lawsuits against health care facilities and providers. - the rise in consumerism in our society.

CAI for Nursing students and Nursing Staffs

programs are available that teach psychomotor skills, dosage computation, care planning, problem solving, critical thinking and content in many medical conditions.

Research on Effectiveness of CAI

CAI is at least as effective if not more effective than traditional pedagogy for the content areas studied. The vast number of studies that have been conducted give weight to the conclusion that CAI is an effective way to achieve student learning.

Internet is a mammoth complex of computer connections across continents, connecting many millions of computers.

Electronic mail can be used to provide greater collaboration between teachers and students and between students and students.

New Groups
are similar to listservs in that they are discussion groups of people with similar interests.

World Wide Web

a collection of millions of documents found on Web Pages that interface to the Internet.

World Wide Web Searches

surfing the web is an appropriate some people take, but it is like aimlessly walking up and down unmarked and unfamiliar supermarket aisles, hopping you are soon find the item you are seeking.

Evaluating World Wide Web Sites

let the reader beware and let the reader have some criteria in mind for sorting out the good from the garbage.
