Procedures for Creating a Media Environment to Help Change Teacher Role from Disseminating Information to Guiding Independent Learners. Final Report.
Sabella, Anthony C.
This study attempted to show that preparation for and use of an audiovideo dial-select information retrieval system in a new middle school could help to change the teacher's role from that of dispenser of information to guide in an independent learning situation. Because of unavoidable delays in the installation of the dial-select equipment, the central premises of this study were never tested. This report provides a narrative history of the inservice training program that introduced staff to the dial-select system. Possible uses of this information retrieval system are described and the available evidence of change in teacher and pupil attitudes and behavior is analyzed. An account of the main operational and research problems encountered by the staff and a list of the major outcomes and recommendations conclude the report.
