8mm Film in Education: Status and Prospects--1968.
An overwhelming deterrent to the use of film in the classroom has been the inaccessibility of the films and the complicated projectors required to show them. Eight-millimeter film has the potential to lower the cost of films, making them more accessible, and to make showing them vastly simpler. This paper traces the development of 8mm film use in education, noting the various factors which have militated against the full use of the format's possibilities in education. The author describes the state of 8mm educational film and projector as it stands today and points out the potential for local production of films. He predicts a gradual trend to the use of 8mm format in education and to the development of increasingly simple means of projection. (JY)
