Japan Audio-Visual Education Association, Tokyo.; Japan Audio-Visual Informationn Center for International Service, Tokyo.
A variety of promising new media are considered from the perspectives of their educational effectiveness, major features, and potential for educational utilization. In Part I, three categories of new media are specifically addressed: (1) broadcasting systems--satellite broadcasting, high-definition (high resolution) television, (multiplexed) teletext, still picture television, facsimile broadcasting; (2) closed-circuit/cable systems--closed-circuit/cable television, videotext, integrated service digital neworks, video response systems; and (3) non-electronic delivery systems--videodiscs and the magnetic video camera (MAVICA). Additional media involving cable television systems are also mentioned. A discussion of microcomputers and education in Part II is based on data taken from a 1983 survey of microcomputer procurement and utilization in Japanese schools and in social education facilities such as public halls, libraries, museums, youth education centers, and audiovisual centers/libraries. Twelve examples of microcomputer uses in specific schools and social education facilities are given. (LMM)
