A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO INVESTIGATE THE INSTRUMENTATION, ESTABLISHMENT, AND OPERATION OF A LEARNING LABORATORY FOR HARD-OF-HEARING CHILDREN, FINAL REPORT.
STEPP, ROBERT E.
TEN CHILDREN AGED 5-8 WERE SELECTED TO TEST A SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL, SELF-OPERATING SYSTEM TO DEVELOP LIPREADING SKILLS. THEIR HEARING DEFICIENCY RANGED FROM HARD OF HEARING TO PROFOUNDLY DEAF. THE SYSTEM CONSISTED OF THREE STUDY CARRELS, AN 8-MM CARTRIDGE-LOADING SOUND MOTION PICTURE PROJECTOR, AND AN OBSERVATION BOOTH UTILIZING A ONE-WAY MIRROR. TWENTY-FIVE SOUND AND COLOR FILMS STRESSING SINGLE-WORD, ASSOCIATED-WORD, AND MULTIPLE-WORD INSTRUCTIONAL PATTERNS AND A SERIES OF FILM TESTS TO MEASURE THEIR ABILITY TO LIPREAD THE VOCABULARY PRESENTED WERE PRODUCED. EACH INSTRUCTIONAL PATTERN CONTAINED PRESENTATION, REVIEW, AND RESPONSE ELEMENTS. THE SYSTEM WAS EVALUATED THROUGH STUDENT CASE HISTORIES CONSISTING OF NEARLY 1,000 OBSERVATIONS COMPILED ON A DAILY BASIS. A SECOND EVALUATION TECHNIQUE CONSISTED OF PERIODIC FILMING OF THE REACTIONS OF THE STUDENT WHILE VIEWING THE FILM AND USING IT TO PRODUCE A 16-MM SPLIT-FRAME PRODUCTION FOR STUDYING THE STIMULUS (TEACHER) AND THE RESPONSE (STUDENT). THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH A TEACHING RAPPORT SIMILAR TO THAT WHICH CURRENTLY EXISTS IN FACE-TO-FACE TEACHING. CITED AS AREAS OF FURTHER RESEARCH ARE FIELD STUDIES, INSTRUCTION IN EXISTING CURRICULUM SUBJECTS, INVESTIGATION INTO THE INDEPENDENT LEARNING VERSUS SUPPLEMENTAL LEARNING MODES FOR UTILIZATION OF THE SYSTEM, NARRATION TECHNIQUES, THE TEACHER/STUDENT RELATIONSHIP ROLES, FUNCTIONAL DESIGN OF LABORATORY FACILITIES, DISPLAY MEDIA, AND ITS APPLICATION TO OTHER TYPES OF HANDICAPS.
