PROGRAMMED LEARNING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
EVERETT, J. BERNARD
PROGRAMED LEARNING APPEARS TO OFFER GREAT PROMISE AS A MEANS OF INDIVIDUALIZING INSTRUCTION. PROGRAMED LEARNING MATERIALS, IF WELL CONSTRUCTED, PROVIDE A "BUILT-IN" MOTIVATION. THEY OFFER OPPORTUNITIES FOR INSERVICE EDUCATION OF TEACHERS AND APPEAR TO HOLD GREAT PROMISE AS A MEANS OF PROVIDING "BREATHING SPACE" IN SCHOOL PROGRAMS FOR BOTH TEACHERS AND LEARNERS. RESISTANCE TO INTRODUCING NEW SUBJECT MATTER INTO THE CURRICULUM CAN BE BROKEN DOWN BY PROGRAMED LEARNING. IN ORDER TO IMPLEMENT A COURSE OF PROGRAMED LEARNING, THE PROFESSIONAL STAFF MUST BE INFORMED, CONTACTS SHOULD BE MADE WITH OTHER SYSTEMS WHICH HAVE MADE A START IN SUCH A PROGRAM, ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE SHOULD BE OBTAINED FROM THE CENTER FOR PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, AND TEACHERS SHOULD BE SENT TO THE TRAINING CENTER FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS. IT IS INCREASINGLY EVIDENT THAT THE MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FUTURE OF PROGRAMED LEARNING RESTS PRIMARILY WITH PUBLIC SCHOOL EDUCATORS, WHO MUST TAKE THE INITIATIVE.
