DEVELOPMENT OF FILMSTRIP SEQUENCE PHOTOGRAPHS AND SOUND REPRODUCTION OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PRESENTATIONS.
MARTINI, HARRY R.
BLACK AND WHITE FILMSTRIPS THAT REPRODUCED STILL PICTURES AND SOUND TRACK FROM EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION BROADCASTS WERE USED TO STUDY THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ETV REPRODUCTIONS IN AIDING POOR ACHIEVERS. THE SPECIFIC ADVANTAGE OF SUCH A REPRODUCTION WAS THAT IT COULD BE PACED TO THE LEARNING TEMPO OF THE STUDENTS RATHER THAN USING THE TOO-FAST PACE OF A REGULAR BROADCAST. THE PROJECT WAS DIVIDED INTO TWO PHASES. PHASE 1 CONSISTED OF THE PRODUCTION OF THE FILMSTRIPS, UNIT GUIDES, AND TEACHER AND PUPIL STUDY MATERIALS. PHASE 2 TESTED THE FILMSTRIPS, WHOSE TOPICS WERE GEOGRAPHY AND EARTH STUDY, ON TWO MATCHED GROUPS OF POOR ACHIEVERS IN GRADES 7 AND 8. TWO OTHER MATCHED GROUPS WERE USED AS CONTROL SECTIONS. DUE TO A PROBLEM IN TIME SEQUENCING OF THE ORIGINAL BROADCASTS WHICH DID NOT PERMIT SEQUENCED FILMSTRIPS TO BE PRODUCED, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PACING STILL PHOTOS AS A FACTOR IN LEARNING WAS NOT EXPLORED. THE INVESTIGATOR DID CONCLUDE THAT FILMSTRIP REPRODUCTION FROM ETV BROADCASTS IS FEASIBLE AND THAT SUCH REPRODUCTIONS CAN SOLVE THE CONFLICT OF BROADCAST AND CLASSROOM TIME SCHEDULES. FROM POST-EXPERIMENTAL ATTITUDE TESTS, THE INVESTIGATOR CONCLUDED THAT PUPILS HAD A MORE FAVORABLE ATTITUDE TOWARD THE SUBJECT IN WHICH THE FILMSTRIPS WERE USED BUT DID NOT NECESSARILY MENTION THE FILMSTRIPS AS A REASON.
