Instructional applications of personal computers and spreadsheet software in accounting: A taxonomy of objectives and methods
Three major classes of instructional objectives that make use of personal computers and spreadsheet software are differentiated and discussed. The three major classes are distinguished by the extent to which they emphasize: (a) specific computer-modelling skills and techniques; (b) strategic, decision-making skills which rely upon computer models; and (c) general, non-computer-related accounting concepts. Instructional strategies, allocations of resources and methods of evaluation are discussed for each class of objectives. Examples are given for the implementation of each objective. © 1989.
