LEARNING FROM TELEVISION, WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS.
CHU, GODWIN C.; SCHRAMM, WILBUR
60 PROPOSITIONS IN 6 AREAS CONCERNING THE CONDITIONS OF EFFECTIVE LEARNING FROM TELEVISION ARE DEVELOPED FROM A SURVEY OF THE RESEARCH LITERATURE--(1) HOW MUCH PUPILS LEARN FROM INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION, (2) EFFICIENT USE OF THE MEDIUM IN A SCHOOL SYSTEM, (3) TREATMENT, SITUATION, AND PUPIL VARIABLES, (4) ATTITUDES TOWARD INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION, (5) TELEVISION IN DEVELOPING REGIONS, (6) LEARNING FORM TELEVISION COMPARED WITH LEARNING FROM OTHER MEDIA. EVIDENCE FOR EACH PROPOSITION IS BRIEFLY SUMMARIZED. LITERATURE SEARCH DEPENDED PARTLY ON ABSTRACTS, PARTLY ON COMPLETE DOCUMENTS, AND INCLUDED FOREIGN AS WELL AS U.S. RESEARCH. IT IS CONCLUDED FROM OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT TELEVISION CAN BE AN EFFICIENT TOOL OF LEARNING AND TEACHING. WHEN IT IS NOT EFFICIENT, THE REASON IS USUALLY IN THE WAY IT IS USED. EVIDENCE FAVORS THE INTEGRATION OF TELEVISION INTO OTHER INSTRUCTION, SIMPLICITY RATHER THAN "FANCINESS", EMPHASIS ON THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS OF GOOD TEACHING, INTRODUCTION OF THE MEDIUM SO AS TO MINIMIZE RESISTANCE, AND TESTING AND REVISION OF PROGRAMS. WHETHER THE TELEVISION MEDIUM IS TO BE PREFERRED, AND WHETHER IT IS FEASIBLE FOR DEVELOPING REGIONS, DEPENDS ON OBJECTIVES AND CONDITIONS. A SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF 303 TITLES IS INCLUDED.
