A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT OF PROGRAMED TELEVISION INSTRUCTION.
KOMOSKI, P. KENNETH
A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WAS BEGUN TO CREATE GROUP-PACED, PROGRAMED TELEVISION INSTRUCTION IN THE FORM OF A SHORT SERIES OF LESSONS DESIGNED TO ENABLE STUDENTS WITHIN A GIVEN TARGET POPULATION TO LEARN A SPECIFIC SET OF INSTRUCTIONAL OBJECTIVES. THREE GEOGRAPHY LESSONS WERE DEVELOPED THROUGH A PROCESS OF TESTING, REVISING, AND VALIDATING UNDER NORMAL CLASSROOM CONDITIONS IN SCHOOLS THAT REGULARLY USE INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION. THESE LESSONS AVOIDED THE "TEACHER-ON-CAMERA" TECHNIQUE AND USED ONLY THE VOICE OF THE TEACHER TO DIRECT ATTENTION TO CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE VISUAL TEACHING DISPLAYS. ALONG WITH THE THREE-LESSON DEMONSTRATION SERIES, A 45-MINUTE FILM WAS PRODUCED WHICH CONTAINED EXCERPTS FROM THE FINAL VERSIONS OF THE THREE LESSONS AND WHICH ALSO SUMMARIZED THE FINAL IN-SCHOOL TESTING OF THE LESSONS AND THE PROCESS BY WHICH THEY WERE DEVELOPED. THE TEST POPULATION INCLUDED ELEMENTARY STUDENTS FROM 17 SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA VICINITY. ALTHOUGH THE INVESTIGATOR INDICATED A NEED FOR DECISION CONCERNING THE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS TO BE TAUGHT BY ANY ONE LESSON, HE CONCLUDED THAT THE USE OF TELEVISION NEED NOT BE LIMITED TO ENRICHMENT PROGRAMING AND THAT THE LESSONS DEVELOPED HAD DEMONSTRATED THE EFFICACY OF GROUP-PACED, PROGRAMED TELEVISION FOR DIRECT INSTRUCTION.
