TEACHING ADULTS VIA TELE-LECTURE AND ELECTROWRITER (VICTOR ELECTRONIC REMOTE BLACKBOARD). FINAL REPORT.
EDELMAN, LILY
THIS PROJECT TESTED WHETHER THE TELE-LECTURE AND ELECTROWRITER COULD (1) BE USED EFFECTIVELY FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS INSTRUCTION OF ADULTS IN MULTIPLE REMOTE AREAS, AND (2) USED BY A MASTER TEACHER TO PROVIDE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ADULTS WHICH IS AT LEAST AS EFFECTIVE AS FACE-TO-FACE INSTRUCTION. UTILIZING AMPLIFICATION AND MICROPHONE TRANSMISSION DEVICES BY TELEPHONE INSTALLATION, TELE-LECTURE MAKES IT POSSIBLE FOR GROUPS AT EACH LOCATION TO HEAR AND ENGAGE IN DISCUSSION WITH SIMILAR GROUPS AT ALL OTHER LOCATIONS HOOKED INTO THE NETWORK. THE ELECTROWRITER PERMITS THE TRANSMISSION BY TELEPHONE OF WRITING IMPRESSIONS WHICH ARE PROJECTED ONTO A SCREEN BY A SPECIALLY DESIGNED OVERHEAD PROJECTOR CONNECTED TO A RECEIVER. DAVID WEINSTEIN, THE "MASTER" TEACHER IN CHICAGO TAUGHT HEBREW SIMULTANEOUSLY TO TELE-LECTURE GROUPS IN GRAND RAPIDS AND EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN, AND TO THE "LIVE" CONTROL GROUP IN CHICAGO FOR NINE CLASS SESSIONS OF 1 HOUR EACH. EACH OF THE EXPERIMENTAL CLASSES WAS ORIGINALLY MADE UP OF A MINIMUM OF 20 STUDENTS WHO HAD NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO READ OR WRITE HEBREW. A SIMILAR CONTROL GROUP ORIGINALLY HAD 40 STUDENTS. AN ANALYSIS OF SCORES ON A MIDTERM AND A FINAL EXAMINATION, AND ON AN ORAL READING TEST INDICATED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PERFORMANCES OF THE THREE GROUPS. THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF THE INSTRUCTOR FROM THE CLASSROOM DID NOT AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE ON ANY OF THE CRITERIA. (PS)
