DEVELOPMENT OF PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITY AND LEARNING OF RELEVANT-IRRELEVANT INFORMATION THROUGH FILM AND TV VERSIONS OF A STRENGTH OF MATERIALS TESTING LABORATORY, FINAL REPORT.
HARRIS, CHARLES O.; AND OTHERS
SEVERAL PROBLEMS WHICH ARISE WITH THE USE OF FILM AND TELEVISION IN INSTRUCTION WERE INVESTIGATED. STUDY CONSIDERATIONS WERE FOCUSED ON DIFFERENTIATION BETWEEN RELEVANT AND IRREVELANT LEARNING BY COMPARING LABORATORY TEACHING TECHNIQUES FOR AN ENGINEERING COURSE WITH FILM PRESENTATIONS OF THE SAME MATERIAL. THERE WERE NO OVERALL SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE FILM VERSUS LABORATORY METHODS OF PRESENTATION. FOR CERTAIN EXPERIMENTS, HOWEVER, THE FILM HAD DIFFERENTIAL EFFECTS. IN PROBLEM-SOLVING EXPERIMENTS, THREE METHODS WERE STUDIED--FILM ONLY, LABORATORY ONLY, AND FILM PLUS LABORATORY. THE COMBINED FILM AND LABORATORY METHOD WAS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EFFECTIVE IN PREPARING THE STUDENT FOR APPLYING THEORY, METHODS, AND KNOWLEDGE ABOUT APPARATUS WHICH WERE LEARNED IN CLASS TO NEW PROBLEM SITUATIONS. INSTRUCTORS OF THE STRENGTH OF MATERIALS COURSE INVESTIGATED AGREED THAT FILMS CAN PRESENT, IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, A SYSTEMATIC AND COMPLETE PRESENTATION WHICH IS DIFFICULT OT OBTAIN IN A LIVE PRESENTATION IN A LABORATORY.
