TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION AND GOOD TEACHING, MORE EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY. PASADENA SCHOOLS IN ACTION.
HORNBECK, RALPH W.
LISTENING-VIEWING CENTERS ARE BEING USED IN SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE EFFECTIVE IN IMPROVING INSTRUCTION AND INCREASING TEACHER EFFICIENCY. LANGUAGE LABORATORIES MEET THE DEMAND FOR PERSON-TO-PERSON COMMUNICATIONS. THEY PERMIT ALL STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE AT THE SAME TIME WITHOUT INTERFERENCE FROM OTHERS, THUS THEY INCREASE EFFECTIVE PARTICIPATION. PROGRAMED LEARNING AND TEACHING MACHINES ARE DESIGNED TO INDIVIDUALIZE AND TO AID THE TEACHER. THEY ARE SELF-CORRECTIVE, ALLOW FOR INDIVIDUAL PACING, FREE THE TEACHER FOR MORE CREATIVE TEACHING, AND, IN SOME OF THE MORE SOPHISTICATED TYPES, PREVENT CHEATING AND CAN PROVIDE A RECORD OF ERRORS AND DATA FOR SUBSEQUENT ANALYSIS AND STATISTICAL STUDY. EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IS AN IMPORTANT INFLUENCE IN TODAY'S CLASSROOM. IT PERMITS MANY AUTHORITIES AND MASTER TEACHERS TO VISIT THE CLASSROOMS, AND IT PERMITS STUDENTS TO WITNESS VIVID PRESENTATIONS WITHIN THEIR OWN ROOM THAT THEY COULD NOT OTHERWISE SEE. IT IS BEING USED IN MANY CURRICULAR AREAS. AUDIOVISUAL TECHNIQUES HAVE MADE A TREMENDOUS IMPACT ON MODERN EDUCATION. THEIR PRIMARY FUNCTION IS TO PROVIDE EXPERIENCES WHEREBY A STUDENT CAN BUILD UP A STOREHOUSE OF MEANINGS. AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS MAKE MEANINGS MORE EXACT, MORE CONCRETE, AND MORE VALID. ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY, PARTICULARLY IN THE AUTOMATION OF MECHANICAL PROCESSES, HAVE BOTH ELIMINATED OLD JOBS AND CREATED NEW ONES. CURRICULUM AND TEACHING METHODS HAVE RESPONDED WITH ADDITIONS AND CHANGES TO MEET THE NEED. ONE TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICE THAT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO IMPLEMENT THE TEACHING OF BUSINESS SUBJECTS IS THE SECRETARIAL LABORATORY. TECHNOLOGY HAS ALSO INFLUENCED THE APPROACHES TO MUSIC AND READING.
