DESIGNING NEW APPARATUS FOR LEARNING.
FLORY, JOHN; AND OTHERS
A 3-DAY CONFERENCE BROUGHT TOGETHER A GROUP OF SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS, MANUFACTURERS, AND EDUCATORS TO DISCUSS THE STATUS OF AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT AND THE KINDS OF NEW APPARATUS WHICH COULD BE DEVELOPED TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF EDUCATION. THE CONFEREES DISCUSSED SPECIFIC RESISTANCES TO INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY AND THE VARIOUS EDUCATIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS WHICH IMPEDE THE DESIGN OF EFFECTIVE APPARATUS OF INSTRUCTION. IT WAS CONFIRMED THAT CURRENT KNOWLEDGE AND USE OF AUDIOVISUAL TECHNIQUES IN AMERICAN EDUCATION IS LOW AND THAT EVEN THE MOST PROGRESSIVE SCHOOLS ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE THE KIND OF EFFECTIVE USE OF AUDIOVISUALS WHICH THE STATE-OF-THE-ART PERMITS. STILL-PROJECTION EQUIPMENT, TEACHING MACHINES AND PROGRAMING DEVICES, EIGHT-MM SOUND MOTION PICTURES, AND TELEVISION AND VIDEO-TAPE RECORDERS WERE DISCUSSED. (JH)
