Audio-Visual Teaching Machines.
Dorsett, Loyd G.
In describing how audiovisual teaching machines may be mixed with programed instruction to create a new discipline which concentrates primarily upon the teaching of specific skills and knowledge, this book discusses many aspects of both fields. These include a generalized description of an audiovisual teaching machine (AVTM) and more detailed discussions of television, computers, and AVTMs; the cost of teaching machine functions; programed instruction in AVTMs, how to write an AVTM program; the uses of picture-dominated learning systems; how to make the program format; technical considerations in AVTM design; and the fear that many educators have of the dehumanizing potential of teaching machines. Examples of audiovisual equipment which could be used for the AVTM are provided throughout. (SP)
