PROGRAMMED TV INSTRUCTION IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE.
ESTARELLAS, JUAN
PAST EFFORTS TO USE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES HAVE PRODUCED VARYING RESULTS. TELEVISION, AS A POSSIBLE SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL MACHINE, HAS BEEN NEGLECTED IN THESE EFFORTS, EVEN THOUGH IT OFFERS UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES FOR BOTH THE PROGRAMER AND THE STUDENT. CRITICS OF TV SAY THAT PROGRAMING IS DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE, THOUGH THIS WAS FOUND TO BE UNTRUE IN THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY AT FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY. IN AN EFFORT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SELF-INSTRUCTION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES, STAFF MEMBERS OF THE DEPARTMENTS OF LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS AND OF LEARNING RESOURCES PREPARED A PROGRAMED TV SERIES IN SPANISH. AN AMPEX VR 1500 VIDEOTAPE RECORDER WAS USED TO RECORD THE PROGRAM, WHICH CONSISTED OF 6,000 FRAMES AND SOME LIVE PERFORMANCE. THE PROBLEM OF SELF-PACING WAS SOLVED BY EQUIPPING EACH STUDENT BOOTH IN THE LAB SO THAT A STUDENT COULD SELECT, START, STOP, REVIEW, OR ACCELERATE ACCORDING TO HIS OWN REQUIREMENTS. THE PROGRAM IS BEING USED WITH EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS AND WILL BE EVALUATED DURING THE COMING YEAR. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION AT THE ANNUAL INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION CONFERENCE OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS (4TH, SANTA BARBARA, APRIL 3-5, 1966). (AM)
