in reply to Perl Automateaching -- part 1: brainstorming

The first brainstorm to have when considering the problem of automating teaching is the realization that the underlying problem is to understand how human behavior, most particularly operant behavior, is shaped and maintained in the process of teaching.

B. F. Skinner investigated operant behavior and came to some very interesting and useful conclusions decades ago with regard to teaching practices (see The Technology of Teaching; http://www.bfskinner.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/ToT.pdf for free automatic (update: i.e., push) download), insights that have lain fallow for nearly two generations now. The nascent technology that Skinner and those associated with him were applying to the problem of teaching was extremely simple in comparison to the computer technology available today. The crucial element was and remains a clear understanding of human behavior.
