Wagner, Robert W.
This publication contains four film scripts, each comprising from six to eleven short sequences. Each script has a complete shot list and transcript of the soundtrack, which contains narration, interviews, discussions, and synchronous sound from documentary situations. The six sequences in "The Information Explosion" cover the history of communication; systems of information storage, retrieval, and control, with illustrations from government, industry, and the professions; and a discussion of the effect of media on children. The eight sequences in "The Process of Communication" deal with communication theory; its application in various training situations where simulation, multimedia techniques, and computers are used; and the use of models of communication, such as the teacher."Perception and Communication" covers, in six sequences, sensory learning, the theory of perception, perceptual training in industry, intercultural perception, and various means of overcoming perceptual barriers. The eleven sequences in "The Teacher and Technology" present the history of educational technology and illustrate a variety of uses for advanced educational media in learning situations, paying particular attention to the teacher's role, and to possible developments in schools of the future.
