Abstract:

We will develop a computer-based training system for fourth through sixth graders which presents factual information in an engaging and enjoyable manner. The system will incorporate advanced computing technologies, interactive multimedia, hypertext, and simulation to maximize learning in a flexible computing environment. Specific objectives include developing a prototype and evaluating its effectiveness in a controlled educational setting. The research results will lead to a better understanding of techniques for applying computer-aided instruction to the presentation of cancer risk reduction information to children. The results should also apply to other age groups and instructional domains.
