Videotape--Thinking About a Medium.
Educators Guide to Media & Methods, v5 n4 p36-41 Dec 1968
The imaginative use of a videotape system can help students understand themselves and communicate with each other. Videotape permits the student to be both performer and part of the audience, either simultaneously through a tape monitor or sequentially through instant playback. Seeing himself objectively can improve the student's self-confidence. Also, self-observation can help the student prepare for future actions (e.g., job interview, dramatic role, or class presentation) by enabling him to eliminate possible blunders and to anticipate audience response. In the classroom itself, videotape enables students to take part in transmitting information and to share the responsibility for presenting it in an interesting form. Videotape has proved its flexibility and value, even with potential drop-outs, in a variety of educational experiences. (LH)
