NEW METHODS AND TECHNIQUES IN EDUCATION. EDUCATIONAL STUDIES AND DOCUMENTS, NUMBER 48.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
THE NEW METHODS AND TECHNIQUES IN EDUCATION INCLUDE RADIO, TELEVISION, AND PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION. RADIO PRESERVES THE BASICALLY ORAL PRESENTATION OF MATERIAL WHILE TELEVISION, COORDINATING BOTH AUDIO AND VISUAL MATERIAL, CAN BE AT LEAST AS EFFECTIVE IN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPTS OF CAUSALITY AND RATIONALIZATION, REDUCING THE DISTANCE BETWEEN EXPERIENCE AND ABSTRACTION, AND PROVIDING A TECHNIQUE FOR THE GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION OF MENTAL ATTITUDES. AS FOR PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, HIGHLY INDUSTRIALIZED SOCIETIES AS WELL AS UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES HAVE RECOGNIZED ITS ADVANTAGE OF FREEING THE TEACHER FROM MANY REPETITIVE TASKS TO CONCENTRATE ON OTHER ASPECTS OF TEACHING. THE PROBLEMS IN PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION YET TO BE SOLVED ARE NOT OF INVENTION BUT OF ADAPTATION. AFTER CONSIDERING THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, THE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS, THE IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS, AND THE FINANCIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS OF THESE NEW METHODS AND TECHNIQUES, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT UNESCO ENCOURAGE AND COORDINATE DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, THE DEVELOPMENT OF FACILITIES, THE TRAINING OF PERSONNEL, AND THE EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION AND MATERIALS. THE STUDIES PRESENTED HERE RESULTED FROM A MEETING OF SPECIALISTS CONVENED BY THE DIRECTOR-GENERAL (PARIS, MARCH 12-20, 1962) AND WAS AVAILABLE IN 1963 FOR $1.00 FROM UNESCO, PLACE DE FONTENOY, PARIS-7E, FRANCE.
