Kidspiration Tutorial

Tutorials are a component of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI). Also included in the CAI category are simulations, games, drill and practice activities, exploratory environments, and reference software. These types of lessons help students learn from the program, whereas tools help students learn with the software through the construction of a product. For example, the VoiceThread tool, as illustrated in my blog, allows students to manipulate and organize information, such as pictures and text, into a coherent product that explains the topic. However, a tutorial (CAI), as shown above, teaches learners about or how to do something. This video tutorial was created using CamStudio.
