DUKE, BENJAMIN C.
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED IN ASIA TO LEARN OF DEVELOPMENTS IN EDUCATIONAL MEDIA RESEARCH AND EXPERIMENTATION. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO COMPILE, TRANSLATE, AND PUBLISH EDUCATIONAL MEDIA MATERIALS FROM THE MAJOR ASIAN COUNTRIES AND TO MAKE THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES. THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR VISITED 20 COUNTRIES IN THE FAR EAST AND THE SOUTH PACIFIC. DURING THESE VISITS, 10 COUNTRIES WERE SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE DIRECTLY IN THE SURVEY, AND A LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE WAS SELECTED AS THE PROJECT ADVISER. EACH ADVISER COLLECTED MATERIALS AND FORWARDED REPORTS TO THE TOKYO OFFICE FOR A PERIOD OF 10 MONTHS. THE REPORTS WERE COMPILED AND DISCUSSED DURING A 1-WEEK CONFERENCE IN TOKYO. INCLUDED IN THE FINAL REPORT IS A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE EDUCATIONAL SITUATION IN THE FAR EAST, A COUNTRY-BY-COUNTRY DESCRIPTION OF EDUCATIONAL MEDIA PROGRESS, A SUMMARY OF THE CONFERENCE, AND RESEARCH ABSTRACTS AND CASE STUDIES. IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT NATIONAL AUDIOVISUAL PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN MOST ASIAN COUNTRIES. THEY ARE USUALLY INFLUENCED AND SUPPORTED BY AMERICAN AID AND FUNCTION AT THE HIGHER ADMINISTRATIVE LEVELS OF EDUCATION. ONLY IN THE CASE OF JAPAN HAS THERE BEEN EXTENSIVE LOCAL INFLUENCE. (JC)
