PRODUCTION AND USE OF CLASSROOMS ON FILM VERSUS TRADITIONAL OBSERVATIONS IN TEACHER EDUCATION, FINAL REPORT.
PAINTER, WILLIAM I.
THIS PROJECT WAS DESIGNED TO EVALUATE THE POSSIBLE AND EFFECTIVE USE OF AUTHENTIC AND UNREHEARSED CLASSROOM FILMS IN LIEU OF DIRECT CLASSROOM OBSERVATION. TWO CONTROL AND TWO EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS WERE ARRANGED WITHIN AN EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, AND A NEW SYLLABUS WAS PRODUCED. NEW TESTS WERE DEVISED TO MEASURE MORE ACCURATELY ANY DIFFERENCES THAT MIGHT OCCUR. THE PROJECT WAS PUT INTO EFFECT FOR THREE SEMESTERS, THE THIRD SEMESTER HAVING THE FULL COMPLEMENT OF NINE FILMS AND NINE OBSERVATIONS. RESULTS FROM THE FIRST SEMESTER SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES. THE SECOND SEMESTER RESULTS SHOWED A STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN FAVOR OF THE FILMS, AND THE FINAL SEMESTER RESULTS SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS. WHILE NO LARGE RESULTS IN FAVOR OF THE FILM SYSTEM WERE DEMONSTRATED USE OF THE FILMS--(1) SAVED A GREAT DEAL OF STUDENT TIME, (2) ALLOWED FOR A LARGER VIEWING GROUP THAN COULD BE ACCOMMODATED IN A CLASSROOM, AND (3) ALLOWED FOR MORE INTELLIGENT STUDENT DISCUSSION BECAUSE OF COMMON OBSERVATION.
