USE OF TECHNICAL MEDIA FOR SIMULATING ENVIRONMENTS TO PROVIDE INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION.
WING, RICHARD L.
AN ESTIMATE WAS OBTAINED OF THE EFFECTIVENESS WITH WHICH THE SIMULATED ENVIRONMENT MODE CAN BE USED TO TEACH CERTAIN UNITS IN EIGHT DIFFERENT SUBJECT AREAS--ART, BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, ELECTRONICS, ELEMENTARY PHYSICS, FRENCH, MUSIC, AND ECONOMICS. THE SPECIFIC MODE USED WAS A SPECIAL CASE OF SIMULATION IN WHICH THE USEFUL FEATURES OF VARIOUS LEARNING SITUATIONS WERE EMPHASIZED. CERTAIN ACTIVITIES WERE CONDUCTED UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE IN THE NATURAL (TRADITIONAL) CLASSROOM. IN ADDITION, THE SIMULATION ALLOWED PARTICIPATING STUDENTS TO PRETEND THEY WERE USING EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT, AND PERMITTED THE COMPRESSION OF TIME (FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE USE OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY). THE ELEMENTS OF THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT WHICH WERE SIMULATED INCLUDED THE BEHAVIOR OF TEACHERS (LECTURE, DIALOGUE, COACHING, AND TESTING), A LABORATORY ENVIRONMENT, ENVIRONMENTS EXTERNAL TO THE SCHOOL (UNITED NATIONS, SKETCHING SCENES, ECONOMIC SYSTEM, MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENTS), AND CONVERSATION.
