Demonstration, Developmental and Research Project for Programs, Materials, Facilities and Educational Technology for Undereducated Adults: Adult Basic Education Materials Demonstration Project; Alabama State Module. Final Report Series.
Morehead State Univ., KY. Appalachian Adult Basic Education Demonstration Center.
The purpose of this project grant was to demonstrate feasibility of local video tape program development for Adult Basic Education, to determine the instructional effectiveness of that programming with ABE students, and to explore means of A.B.E. teacher improvement through use of videotape. Step one, the production of an audio-visual catalog listing material appropriate to Adult Basic Education was completed. Step two, the determination of weak areas in existing audio-visuals resulted in lessons in the general areas of (1) communication skills, and (2) consumer math being developed. Step three, the local development of supplemental video tape recorder (VTR) curricular material was not efficiently or effectively realized because of the lack of knowledgeable professional manpower in television curriculum development and production. Step four, exploration of teacher improvement through the use of VTR was attempted, but inadequate staffing, and logistical and technical difficulties encountered made results of this effort inconclusive.
