United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France). Div. of Structures, Content, Methods and Techniques of Education.
This 4-section report begins with an introductory statement on the overall state of Japan's educational system and covers educational administration, organizations for the promotion of audiovisual instruction in Japan, and educational broadcasting agencies. The current Standards for the Provision of Instructional Aids and Equipment for compulsory schooling are then detailed, and production of instructional materials and equipment is discussed. (Production is handled by two types of organizations: one which produces audiovisual materials including video, films, and transparencies; and the other which produces textbooks and printed materials.) Specific topics addressed include the present status and organization of the production and distribution of educational audiovisual materials, role of the ministry of education in the production of audiovisual materials, educational film production and distribution, production of educational broadcasting programs, and production and distribution of textbooks and printed materials. A discussion of the support system for utilization of teaching materials covers audiovisual laboratories and standards for provision of audiovisual equipment in such laboratories. Conclusions are drawn from the existing educational media situation, and recommendations are made. Ten tables display related data. (LMM)
