B F Skinner Teaching machine and programmed learning

Teaching machine!
The important facts about the teaching and teaching machine:
1. The students can learn at the most effective speed, slow, fast or medium
2. The students are provided with a report about the speed that they carry out their tasks
3. Creates an environment for the learners to continue to learn
4. Allow students to go through learning resources and go through them without feeling left behind or feeling demotivated to do the same again and again, compared to asking the same question in a classroom environment.

The initial idea of a computer for education, it is fascinating to read through a psychologist, educators point of view. However, now this teaching machine that we have today- the computer sometimes considered as a distraction rather than a motivator.

The teaching machine has been around for some time now and it has been used for various purposes from distance learning, accessibility and generating the love for learning
