THE EFFECT OF THE NEW INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA ON THE ROLE OF THE CLASSROOM TEACHER.
WIGREN, HAROLD E.
METHODS TO IMPROVE THE USES OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION ARE DISCUSSED. TELEVISION SHOULD IMPLEMENT EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, CHARACTERISTICS OF 2- TO 5-YEAR-OLDS, DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS, THE CURRICULUM AND THE TEACHER'S RELATIONSHIP TO IT, SCHEDULING, MEDIUM, FOR EACH HAS A ROLE IN THE OVERALL INSTRUCTIONAL SITUATION. OUTDOOR PLAY, SANITATION AND SAFETY, ROUTINE ACTIVITIES, AND SOLO PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR, PERFORMER, OR MASTER TEACHER. TEACHERS SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN PLANNING, ANALYZING, AND EVALUATING THE PROGRAM. PROGRAM QUALITY AND NOT QUANTITY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED. EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF CRITICAL THINKING ON THE PART OF THE LEARNER RATHER THAN ON THE TRANSMISSION OF FACTUAL PRESENTATION OF SUBJECT MATTER. THE VERSATILITY OF TELEVISION SHOULD BE USED TO FOCUS ON THE LEARNERS AS WELL AS ON THE TEACHER, AND TO DEVELOP CREATIVE EXPRESSION FOR THE LEARNER THEMSELVES. INVOLVEMENT, PARTICIPATION, AND INTERACTION ARE ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS IN THE USE OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. WHILE TELEVISION CAN BE EFFECTIVELY USED IN IMPROVING LEARNING IN THE CLASSROOM, IT CAN ALSO BE UTILIZED IN IMPROVING COMPETENCIES OF TEACHERS. ITS POTENTIALITIES FOR INSERVICE EDUCATION INCLUDE--INTRODUCING NEW DEVELOPMENTS, NEW METHODS, AND NEW MATERIALS AND PROVIDING INTERVIEWS WITH VISITING CONSULTANTS. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED TO THE MEETING OF THE GEORGIA AUDIO-VISUAL EDUCATION AFFILIATE (ATLANTA, MARCH 22, 1963).
