Distribution and Use of Electronic Aids in Education.
Canadian Council for Research in Education, Ottawa (Ontario).
A workshop on the distribution and use of electronic aids in education was held at St. Donat, Quebec. Workshop members discussed the advantages of and obstacles to use of these aids and suggested ways by which their use could be increased. A frequent suggestion was to set up distribution boards at the national and regional level to facilitate access to materials. The background papers for the workshop explored ways to choose appropriate educational materials, described the implications for society of increasing post-secondary school enrollment, and summarized information about five basic systems of storing video information for replay through television receivers or monitors. Other papers compared ways of delivering television programs to the classroom on the bases of cost and merit, described the use of television for information retrieval, suggested objectives and alternatives for an educational distribution organization, and outlined a system for distributing educational material on videotape.
