STUDY OF THE AVAILABILITY OF LOCALLY PRODUCED OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION.
FREDRICKSON, RONALD; WYMAN, RAYMOND
A SURVEY AND FEASIBILITY STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE HOW TRANSPARENCIES MIGHT BEST BE UTILIZED TO BENEFIT A WIDE SEGMENT OF THE EDUCATIONAL ENTERPRISE. ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE WERE RECEIVED FROM CONSULTANTS AND AN ADVISORY GROUP. A POPULATION WAS IDENTIFIED WHICH INCLUDED THE MAJOR PORTION OF THE PROMINENT COMMERCIAL TRANSPARENCY PRODUCERS. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED TO SURVEY THE POPULATION, TESTED ON A SMALL SAMPLE, REVISED AND DISTRIBUTED. THE PROJECT WAS PUBLICIZED TO OBTAIN IDEAS AND COOPERATION. SOURCES OUTSIDE THE FIELD OF EDUCATION WERE SOUGHT. RESULTS INDICATED SIX MAJOR CONCLUSIONS--(1) IT IS FEASIBLE TO ESTABLISH A MEANS OF COLLECTION, EVALUATION, DUPLICATION, AND DISTRIBUTION OF LOCALLY DEVELOPED OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES, (2) COPYRIGHT AND EDITING DO NOT APPEAR TO BE MAJOR PROBLEMS AS LONG AS CAUTION IS EXERCISED, (3) A SHORT UTILIZATION STATEMENT IS NEEDED TO ACCOMPANY MOST TRANSPARENCIES DISTRIBUTED BY THE CENTER, (4) AN ORGANIZED PROGRAM ON A NATIONAL LEVEL IS NEEDED TO CONDUCT WORKSHOPS, AND EXCHANGE IDEAS AND PRACTICES CONCERNING THE UTILIZATION OF OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES, (5) LARGE NUMBERS OF GOVERNMENTAL AND BUSINESS SPONSORED OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES WOULD BE USEFUL IN REGULAR CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, AND (6) BASED ON A MAJORITY OF THE ORIGINAL TRANSPARENCIES SAMPLED, SOME EDITING WOULD BE NEEDED BEFORE DUPLICATION. A 3-YEAR DEMONSTRATION PROJECT IS PLANNED TO MAKE LOCALLY PRODUCED TRANSPARENCIES AVAILABLE TO A LARGE NUMBER OF EDUCATORS. (HB)
