THE STATE OF AUDIOVISUAL TECHNOLOGY--1961-1966, MONOGRAPH NO. 3.
GODFREY, ELEANOR P.
THE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL TECHNOLOGY OVER A SIX YEAR PERIOD WAS STUDIED. FROM A BASE OF 2,927 SCHOOL DISTRICTS, 238 DISTRICTS WERE STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE, THE EXTENT OF USE OF THESE RESOURCES, FACTORS WHICH ENCOURAGE OR INHIBIT USE, AND PROSPECTS FOR THE FUTURE. ESTIMATES OF AMOUNTS OF ELEVEN ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT AND FIVE MATERIALS WERE MADE. LIKEWISE, ESTIMATES OF NEEDS WERE MADE. THE SECOND PHASE OF THE PROJECT INCLUDED THE DISTRIBUTION OF AUDIOVISUAL RESOURCES, TEACHER USE OF THESE RESOURCES, AND THE CLIMATE OF STAFF OPINION. FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF THESE RESOURCES INCLUDED THE PROPORTION OF TEACHERS WHO USE AUDIOVISUAL MATERIAL AT ALL, THE PROPORTION WHO USE ANY ONE MATERIAL FREQUENTLY, OR THE PROPORTION WHO USE A VARIETY OF MEDIA. THE CLIMATE OF OPINION WAS ANALYZED IN TERMS OF THE CENTRALITY OF AUDIOVISUAL TECHNOLOGY IN THE TEACHING PROCESS, THE PROBLEMS WHICH HINDER EFFECTIVE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA, AND THE PLANS FOR FUTURE USE OF VARIOUS MATERIALS. THE EXAMINATION OF CHANGE IN THIS TECHNOLOGY INCLUDED THE EXTENT AND DIRECTION OF CHANGE AS WELL AS THE IMPACT OF VARIOUS SCHOOL DISTRICT CHARACTERISTICS. FORECASTS FOR THE FUTURE (1966-67) WERE DRAWN FROM STUDIES MADE IN 1961 AND 1964.
