The potential value of educational mass media must be weighed against their complexity, costs, and organizational demands within the context of society as a whole. Conclusions of a conference with representatives from research, education, and media indicate that the first criterion for evaluating educational media is how they can make a curriculum more responsive to the needs of society. More research is needed, at the producing and the receiving levels. The main emphasis at the school level must be on qualitative improvement rather than on gross saving in manpower. The most urgent need is for training. Teachers must become specialists in a subject or an age range, in which they master the educational media. They also must be aware of the resources and vocabulary of the media, and further, they have to be cognizant of the relation of media use to the learning process. (OH)
