A Study to Determine the Acceptance and Effectiveness of an Experimental Mobile Unit Which Serves Milford, Beaver, Delta, and Fillmore in Southern Utah.
Widmer, Grant W.
The study determined the acceptance by high school students of a mobile-classroom approach to the teaching of electronics. Also investigated was the effectiveness of this teaching method with high school students in the southern Utah communities of Milford, Beaver, Delta, and Fillmore during the 1968-69 school year. As ascertained by the attitude inventory scale, the program unit was well accepted by the students. In addition, student improvement was made in relation to the knowledge of electronics during the course period. The mobile unit was viewed as a possible partial solution to the problem of the small high school which, with its limited faculty and funding, has to compete with the larger schools in producing students with salable skills for the job market. Advantages, disadvantages, and recommendations regarding the use of the mobile classroom were discussed. (BD)
