He designed and conducted an experiment that compared language learning during computer-controlled (conduit) versus learner-controlled (berry-bush) computer-assisted activities. Stevens borrowed the conduit and berry-bush metaphors from Scollon and Scollon (1982), who had earlier studied human interaction with computers and noted that children’s approaches differed greatly from those of adults; they found that adults tended to approach computer work more linearly than did children. Through his empirical work, Stevens determined that ESL students learned more of the target language when they controlled paths through the content (the berry-bush) than when instruction was the purview of the machine (the conduit).
