Educational Electronics; a Presentation of the PE Group and Its Work.
Instructional media have been studied for many years in the Department of Applied Electronics of the Royal Institute of Technology to determine their value for teaching purposes. They have been studied particularly as an aid to instruction on semiconductors. The choice of teaching format and of media has been determined by the basic philosophy that the emphasis should lie on studying the literature in the field. Media use has been restricted, for many pedagogical and economic reasons, to a supplementary role in teaching. Several methods have been tried (slide projectors, film, and television), and some, such as computers and various combinations of computers and other media, have yet to be evaluated. The most successful and economical device has proven to be a system with four projectors for still pictures, in which the pictures are triggered by impulses from the second channel of a tape recorder, and the accompanying sound is recorded on the first channel of the tape. This instructor-directed system is used for about 20 minutes during a two-hour lecture. A simple electronic feedback mechanism with push buttons permits the students to inform the teacher if they cannot keep up. (OH)
