CROSSMAN, DAVID M.
GUIDES TO AID ADMINISTRATORS IN THE SELECTION AND INSTALLATION OF ELECTRONIC CLASSROOMS ARE PRESENTED. ADVANTAGES OF AN ELECTRONIC CLASSROOM ARE THAT A VARIETY OF MATERIALS CAN BE USED, SPEECH PATTERNS CAN BE RECORDED FOR SUBSEQUENT EVALUATION, RECORDED LESSONS CAN BE USED AGAIN AND AGAIN, PROGRESS OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS CAN BE MONITORED WITHOUT DISTURBING OTHER STUDENTS,OPTIMUM TEACHERS CAN SUPPLY CLASSES WITH LIVE OR RECORDED MATERIALS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, ALLOWING EACH STUDENT TO RESPOND INDEPENDENTLY. WHILE THE GREATEST USEFULNESS OF THE ELECTRONIC CLASSROOM IS IN THE TEACHING OF A MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGE, IT IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR TEACHING AN ELEMENTARY COURSE IN CHAUCER, FOR LEARNING MUSIC APPRECIATION AND ORAL INTERPRETATION, AND FOR DRILL PURPOSES IN THE TEACHING OF SHORTHAND AND OTHER BUSINESS SKILLS. MOST ELECTRONIC CLASSROOM INSTALLATIONS ARE EITHER OF THE LISTEN-RESPOND TYPE, THE LISTEN-RESPOND AUDIO-ACTIVE TYPE, OR THE LISTEN-RESPOND-RECORD TYPE. A GREAT VARIETY OF RECORDED MATERIAL IS AVAILABLE, MUCH IS COORDINATED WITH TEXTBOOKS. THE PURCHASING OF A CLASSROOM INVOLVES INITIAL MEETINGS OF FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICERS, CONSULTANT ASSISTANCE, ACCUMLATION OF VENDOR INFORMATION, VISITS TO SCHOOLS WITH ELECTRONIC CLASSROOM FACILITIES, WRITING SPECIFICATIONS, ADVERTISEMENTS FOR BIDS, BID OPENINGS, AWARDS OF CONTRACT, INSTALLATION, INSPECTION BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN, FACULTY TRAINING, AND PAYMENT TO THE VENDOR.
