Media Manual (How to Use Media Equipment).
Using a workbook format, this guide explains the use of seven types of audiovisual equipment: overhead projector, Bell and Howell 16mm motion picture projector, Dukane filmstrip projector, record player, Kodak slide projector, Wollensak 2552 tape recorder, and JVC videocassette color video system. An introductory section includes (1) a media survey to assess ability to use the audiovisual equipment; (2) an article by Norma M. Harrod, "Use Media? Who Me? I'd Like to But" which lists 50 typically-offered excuses for not using media; and (3) a statement on copyright and audiovisual media by the Association of Media Producers. Separate chapters are then devoted to each of the seven types of equipment. Each chapter includes specific steps in equipment operation and maintenance, suggestions for its use, and ideas for creating materials such as overhead transparencies and slides. A series of worksheets for media students in each section incorporates a variety of applications activities such as problem-solving, sentence completion, vocabulary games and puzzles, and matching. Self-quizzes and tests are provided for each topic. A chart shows the effectiveness of various types of instructional media in relationship to different types of learning, and a 24-page glossary of current audiovisual terms is included. (LMM)
