ANALYSIS OF METHODS IN WHICH APPLICATION OF NEW COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA MAY IMPROVE TEACHER PREPARATION IN LANGUAGE, SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS.
TINTERA, JAMES B.
THREE METHODS OF EMPLOYING COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA FOR TEACHER TRAINING WERE USED TO TEST THREE HYPOTHESES--(1) STUDENT TEACHERS WHO ANALYZE THEIR TEACHING PERFORMANCE WITH THE HELP OF TAPE RECORDINGS WILL RECEIVE HIGHER RATINGS THAN STUDENT TEACHERS GIVEN ONLY CONVENTIONAL CRITIQUES, (2) STUDENT TEACHERS WHO ANALYZE THEIR TEACHING USING KINESCOPE (VIDEO TAPE) RECORDINGS WILL RATE HIGHER THAN STUDENT TEACHERS USING ONLY TAPE RECORDERS OR GIVEN ONLY CONVENTIONAL CRITIQUES, AND (3) AFTER 6 MONTHS, STUDENT TEACHERS USING KINESCOPE RECORDINGS WILL RECEIVE RATINGS HIGHER THAN STUDENTS USING TAPE ONLY, WHO IN TURN WILL RATE HIGHER THAN STUDENTS RECEIVING ONLY CONVENTIONAL CRITIQUES. RESULTS SHOWED THE MEASURING INSTRUMENTS REVEALED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN STUDENT TEACHER RATINGS TO SUPPORT EITHER HYPOTHESIS ONE OR TWO. AFTER SIX MONTHS STUDENT TEACHERS TRAINED WITH THE AID OF KINESCOPE RECORDINGS RECEIVED RATINGS THAT WERE NOT SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM TEACHERS USING TAPES, BUT BOTH GROUPS RATED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN STUDENTS RECEIVING ONLY CONVENTIONAL CRITIQUES. ALTHOUGH THE TEST INSTRUMENTS FAILED TO SHOW SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN RESULTS OF SOME PHASES OF THE TESTING, THE STUDENTS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE SELF-OBSERVATION (LISTENING) SITUATION SHOWED THE EXPERIENCE HELPED BY GAINING (1) HIGHER AVERAGE SALARIES, (2) IMPROVED DRESS AND BEHAVIOR, AND (3) POSITIVE REACTIONS OF FELLOW STUDENTS AND PERSONNEL OFFICERS.
