Survey of audiovisual material usage in individual guided education, secondary
MetadataShow full item record
Accountability, budget scrutiny, and taxpayer revolt create budgetary conflicts for educators facing competition from audio and visual entertainment, increased material to be taught, and the development of individualized education. To meet these challenges utilization of instructional technology is increasing on all levels. This movement received impetus from the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965. Today those with the responsibility of meeting the demands for media materials face a difficult task on their reduced budgets. The wide variety of available materials, changing methodology and learning climates, short-term preferences, improved and new sensory aids are additional considerations in selecting the correct equipment. To provide a tool for determining the value of audio and sensory materials in an individually guided program an accumulation of data was gathered through questionnaires, tabulations, personal interviews, and observations. The three year study resulted in identifying media materials acceptable to all levels and isolated other materials relative to grade and experience in an individualized program.
