Training Vocational Educators in the Development and Utilization of Instructional Interactive Laser Disc and Computer Assisted Instruction Materials. Final Report.
Hoogestraat, Richard; And Others
A project was conducted to train Pennsylvania vocational educators to manage, develop, and evaluate interactive video and computer-assisted instruction (CAI). Activities included a day-long workshop that consisted of a general introduction session and small group sessions to provide hands-on experience with interactive video software, an overview of the various components of the production process, and an overview of the role this technology has in addressing individual learner needs and styles. Following the workshop, 25 participants were selected for an intensive training program on the development of interactive video/videodisc and computer-assisted instructional materials. The intensive course involved 75 hours of training during a 6-month period. As a result of the training, participants developed at least six different interactive videodisc programs. Then they assisted their institutions in implementing this technology. The project was considered successful by participants and developers. Products produced by the project included a final report, newsletters and flyers, an interactive videodisc demonstration program, and instructional materials used during the inservice training sessions.
