A Study of the Feasibility of Using Television to Teach Child Psychology to the Acoustically Handicapped. Final Report.
Shurtz, Richard R.
Conventional methods are inadequate for teaching deaf people, especially at college level. In order to determine whether television would be more effective, several factors needed to be investigated. Priority was given to the design of the instructional program. A multisensory method (the simultaneous method) was adopted. Tests showed that the program should have a determined pace rather than one that was individual. Sixteen-millimeter films were used, because video tape recorders are not standerized. Special standards were evolved for selecting the television instructor and interpreter. Tests were made to determine what kind of visual and tape formats to use. Regular films proved more effective in teaching than slow-motion films. The finished product, a 16mm television film on child psychology was found to be useful for instructing deaf people, although several modifications were suggested. There are recommendations for future research, and the research methods are fully documented and illustrated. (GO)
