RESEARCH IN NEW MEDIA IN EDUCATION.
HOBAN, CHARLES F., JR.
NEWER MEDIA RESEARCH ATTEMPTS TO PROVIDE INFORMATION WHICH CAN DEEPEN, BROADEN, AND EXTEND ADMINISTRATORS' AND TEACHERS' KNOWLEDGE OF THE USE OF NEW MEDIA. MEDIA RESEARCH HAS NOT BEEN AN EFFECTIVE INSTRUMENT FOR DEEPENING THE CAPACITY OF EDUCATIONAL POLICY-MAKERS FOR SOUND JUDGMENTS IN THIS AREA. DIFFICULTIES OF POLICY MAKING ARE THE ATTRIBUTION OF GREAT POWER TO THE MEDIA OF COMMUNICATION, AND THE IGNORANCE OR AVOIDANCE OF THE COMPLEXITY OF COMMUNICATION THAT LEADS TO OVEROPTIMISM ABOUT RESULTS TO BE OBTAINED WHEN NEW COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA ARE INTRODUCED INTO EDUCATION. LACK OF ADEQUATE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES HAMPERS JUDGMENT IN THE ACCEPTANCE, REJECTION, ADAPTION, OR IMAGINATIVE EXPERIMENTATION IN THE USES OF NEWER MEDIA IN EDUCATION. THE MAJOR DEVELOPMENTS EVIDENT IN NEWER MEDIA INVOLVE THE CONCEPTS OF NEWER MEDIA AS PRIMARY INSTRUMENTS OF INSTRUCTION, AND THE CONTROL OF LEARNING BY REMOTE CONTROL OF STIMULUS AND RESPONSE. SIGNIFICANT CONCEPTS OF NEWER MEDIA INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING--(1) TECHNOLOGY INVOLVES AN INTEGRATED COMPLEX OF IDEAS, ORGANIZATION, MANAGEMENT, AND MACHINES, (2) A SYSTEM IS AN ARRANGEMENT OF COMPONENTS SO THAT COMPATABILITY AND PURPOSEFUL PERFORMANCE ARE ACHIEVED BY ORGANIZATION AND ADJUSTMENT BETWEEN AND AMONG THE COMPONENTS, AND (3) INNOVATION INVOLVES THE HUMAN RECEPTION OF AND RESPONSE TO A NEW IDEA CARRIED OR ABOUT TO BE CARRIED INTO ACTION. INSTRUCTIONAL EFFICIENCY OF NEWER MEDIA DERIVES NOT SO MUCH FROM THE MEDIA THEMSELVES, AS FROM THE EFFECTIVE USE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF TEACHING AND LEARNING INCORPORATED INTO THE MEDIA.
