Instructional Process and Media Innovation.
Weisgerber, Robert A., Ed.
Education should make human use of human resources. Conversely, those elements of instruction and learning which are non-human in nature are appropriate for technological implementation. Research findings in the latter area make possible the utilization of technology in education. Part I of this book considers the relationship of media to: curriculum, acquisition of skills, concepts, and understandings; to attitude development; and to creativity. The second part discusses public schools, higher education, and adult education. Part III looks at art, science, social studies, humanities, business, retarded children, and the economically and culturally deprived. Part IV discusses computers, films, and television; their educational history and impact; and present directions. The final section treats the implications of instructional objectives for learning; location, selection, and production of teaching and learning resources; the follow-up of use of audiovisual materials, and criterion-referenced testing for the measurement of educational outcomes.
