Educational TV and Audiovisual Teacher Training Program for Title I Board of Education Teachers of Disadvantaged Pupils in the Nonpublic Schools.
A project was designed to evaluate a teacher training program in the use of audiovisual resources for teachers in the nonpublic New York City schools for the disadvantaged. It was conducted to insure effective utilization in the teaching-learning situation of audiovisual resources provided to these schools through ESEA Title I and Title II monies. The program dealt broadly with the educational values of audiovisual presentations, with their applications to teaching the disadvantaged child, and with the optimal uses of instructional television, overhead projectors, filmstrip projectors, phonographs, and audiotapes and tape recorders. The evaluation aimed to determine whether participant teachers' abilities in using audiovisual resources were improved, and whether the addition of audiovisual techniques improved pupil involvement and performance. Data gathered in the evaluation indicate that the program was well organized, useful, and fairly successful in achieving its objectives. The success was limited by several factors: the program was conducted too late in the school year for teachers to practice their new skills, and shortages of equipment further decreased opportunities for use. Given the program limitations, participants were better equipped to utilize audiovisual technology in the classroom as a result of the training experience. (MT)
