Workshop II: Video Technology & Programs for the Deaf; Current Developments & Plans for the Future.
Southern Regional Media Center for the Deaf, Knoxville, TN.
The Workshop on Video Technology (1969) sponsored by the Southern Regional Media Center for the Deaf explored uses of video technology in deaf education. An introductory lecture points out the potential effectiveness of video technology for gearing programs to individual needs, specifically the needs of the deaf. The necessity for formulating specific objectives in utilizing video hardware, as opposed to random experimentation is considered, and practical experience in industry is outlined in a presentation which describes the use of videotape in training personnel in a telephone company. Limitations and advantages of using videotape in deaf education, and demonstrations presented by institutions of deaf education concerning application of video technology in equipment, techniques for the classroom teacher, and the use of closed circuit television are discussed. A final paper summarizes the workshop in terms of current progress and suggested areas for research. (JB)
