USING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION.
NORTON, ROBERT E.
ALTHOUGH THIS REPORT ON THE STATUS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION AND THE POTENTIAL IT HOLDS FOR SCHOOLS EMPHASIZES THE APPLICATIONS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION TO OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION, MUCH OF WHAT IS SAID IS ALSO APPLICABLE TO GENERAL EDUCATION. AN EXAMPLE OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, AN OVERVIEW OF SUPPORTING PSYCHOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES, RESEARCH FINDINGS, SOME CONTROVERSIES, SOME ADVANTAGES, AND SOME LIMITATIONS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION ARE PRESENTED. A DISCUSSION OF THE SELECTION AND USE OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS INCLUDES WHAT THE MATERIALS CAN TEACH, HOW THEY SHOULD BE USED, THE KINDS AVAILABLE, THE ECONOMICS OF USING THEM, AND RECOMMENDED SELECTION PROCEDURES. CASE STUDIES FROM SCHOOLS AND INDUSTRIES USING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION SUCCESSFULLY IN OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION ARE PRESENTED FOR BASIC INDUSTRIAL SKILLS, BUSINESS, ENGLISH, MEDICAL EDUCATION, HEALTH AND SAFETY, HOME ECONOMICS, INDUSTRIAL TRAINING, MEDICAL SALES, PERSONNEL PRACTICES, TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL, SELLING AND RETAILING, SPELLING, VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE, AND 14 VOCATIONAL AREAS. ALTHOUGH THE SUCCESSFUL USE OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION HAS BEEN WIDESPREAD, ADMINISTRATORS AND TEACHERS SHOULD LEARN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ABOUT IT BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO USE IT, INVOLVE QUALIFIED TEACHERS, SELECT MATERIALS CAREFULLY, TRY IT ON A SMALL SCALE UNTIL IT IS PROVED SUCCESSFUL, FOLLOW GOOD MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES, AND INTEGRATE IT WITH OTHER METHODS OF INSTRUCTION. SOURCES OF PROGRAMED TEXT MATERIALS, RECOMMENDED REFERENCES, CRITERIA FOR ASSESSING PROGRAMED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REPORTING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MATERIALS, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED.
