Theory and Educational Objectives in the Use of New Teaching Media.
Perlmutter, Morton S.
The theories and objectives in the uses of the media available to Social Work Education, currently and in the future, are surveyed in this paper. The theories covered are those which relate to all media in general, but special emphasis is placed on those which have an impact on the theoretical approaches for teaching, experimentation and research. The paper first considers the entire area of communications and communications systems. It then points out the value of the evaluation, feedback and validity concepts. The idea of goal orientation and its related concept, system flexibility, are defined. Learning thrust and impact--the particular point of information one wants to intrude upon the thinking, perception or integration facilities of the learner--is defined and discussed. The paper concludes with a set of axiomatic principles to serve as guidelines in the use of media. (JY)
