Educational Communications and Technology as Applied to Science Education in Intermediate/Middle School.
Young, Donald B.
An overview of research in educational communications and technology is provided as it applies to science education in intermediate/middle school grades 6-9. The overview is divided into five chapters focusing on: (1) educational television; (2) film; (3) audio; (4) programmed learning; and (5) visual. The major thrust of the review is to identify the most effective use of each of the five areas for science education as well as advantages and limitations. Each chapter reviews the research literature, provides a number of abstracts exemplifying the findings, and includes a summary, conclusions, and bibliography. It is suggested that the most effective use of media for science education appears to be combinations of all types with traditional science instruction, thus providing students with a variety of learning modes.
