Newer Educational Media; Papers of the Regional Research Conference.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park.
Because both educational researchers and teachers need to be aware of each other's work in order to exchange ideas on new techniques and research needs, a conference was called to bring together leaders in research, school administration, and teacher education. The papers presented at the conference first covered research findings to date on motion pictures and other pictorial media, television, and programed instruction and then dealt with the implications of this research for curriculum change, administrative organization, and teacher education. The suggestions proffered cover a wide range. For example, team teaching will become more important as the knowledge explosion continues. Curriculum changes must be systematic throughout the entire range of the educational system, must integrate subject matter and new media, must focus on individual and group differences, and must allow teachers and students full use of their individual abilities. Teacher training ought to include practice in the design and application of media as well as higher standards in subject and professional areas. Extensive in-service programs should be offered to acquaint experienced teachers with innovations in educational technology. Reports on the Dade County educational television project and the North Carolina In-School Television Project were also presented. (JY/MT)
