Educational Media; What Research Says to the Teacher Series. Number 14.
Torkelson, Gerald M.
Designed to acquaint educators with research findings into the scope and uses of educational media and their impact on the teacher's changing role, this booklet discusses the shift in research from the consideration of media in general to the effects of specific media and stresses that in the teaching process the human tutor is indispensable. Teachers must understand the characteristics and functions of the various media before they are able to use them imaginatively as tools for teaching. They may then join their unique forces with those of educational media and explore how media materials may be selected in terms of learning goals and processes. Teachers and researchers should work together to improve the effectiveness of educational media. A bibliography is included. (SH)
