The Future of Language Laboratories.
Locke, William N.
The Modern Language Journal, v49 n5 p294-304 May 1965
After a brief history of the development of the language laboratory, the extent, quality, and problems of current laboratory use at the elementary, high school, and college level is discussed, as is the relationship between laboratory equipment and teaching methods. Current research is briefly reviewed, and areas for further study are indicated. The final section of the article makes prediction about the future of language laboratories, which include (1) greater use of audiovisual aids, (2) significant use of programed instruction, which will make the student more independent of the teacher, and (3) large-scale decentralization of the language laboratory.
