Media Resources in Curriculum Development.
Primarily concerned with input to secondary school curriculum development as promulgated in the four national centers of the Scottish Curriculum Development Service (SCDS), this study investigated the ways in which national working parties integrate media resources into their projects, how schools tackle the media elements, and problems of production and availability of media resources at the national level, as well as their function and use. An overview of the agencies involved in the field of media input provides brief descriptions of the agencies and their roles, including the Consultative Committee on the Curriculum, the SCDS, working parties, the Inspectorate, colleges of education, the Educational Authority Advisory Service, broadcasting authorities, the Scottish Council for Educational Technology, and publishers and national centers. The activities of the national centers in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow are described, and areas of need identified by the investigation where appropriate action is thought to be desirable and practical are discussed.
