The main purpose of this research is to find the law of the teaching-learning process that is not able to be discovered through traditional research like the questionnaire technique, and in addition to that, we will make a practical system for training about teaching skills through these new ideas. We found out that the skin resistance response is not present while children are concentrating and are strongly attentive to stimuli. However, for an orienting response, the value of this resistance response increases.
So, for example, veteran teachers do not act or only wait, even if all pupils do not response. But, the pupils were thinking attentively. However, in the case of student teachers, as soon as responses do not continue, they tend to give the pupil the hint that they are moving the focus from the first question. As a result, it happened that the attention of the pupils was stopped and the train of thought was broken etc..
By another view, we found six factors about teacher action types through using multi-dimensional analysis on skin resistance response data. We think that these factors equal strategies of teaching.
So, we think that we are able to make CAI materials for pre-teacher training by using this knowledge. And, in addition, we made a meta-lecture system using computer for pre-teacher training that is able to evaluate teaching methods through skin resistance response. Now, we are checking the ability of this system
