Time Studies of Fourth Graders Generating Alternative Solutions in a Decision-Making Task Using Models and Computer Simulations
Journal of Computing in Childhood Education Volume 4, Number 1, ISSN 1043-1055
Fourth graders were presented decision-making tasks that required hands-on manipulation of objects or manipulation of images using a microcomputer. Computer manipulations used (1) keyboard input; (2) keyboard input and the presentation of reference objects; or (3) light pen input. Subjects required more time to respond to the task when using computer simulations than hands-on manipulation. (MM)
