Graduate Instruction via Telephone.
Finger Lakes Region Supplementary Educational Center, Homer, NY.
Sixty-nine teachers in 14 school districts were taught reading diagnosis by telephone in a study to determine whether the telephone can be used to spread instruction over a wide area. Sixty-one of the student/teachers were tested against 15 others who received instruction in the conventional manner. Conclusions drawn from both studies were as follows: Students taught by telephone did as well as the others and, though they were disturbed by the fact that they could not see the instructor, felt that this disadvantage was offset by the convenience of the telephone system. The instructor declared that he had few difficulties after initial troubles of a technical nature had been eliminated. The telephone system was found to be a useful tool in graduate instruction and capable of being used to extend the influence of the college instructor to a wider audience. (GO)
