An Investigation into the Practice of Screen Education. (The Introduction of Films and Television into Education as an Essential Area of Study). Phase I, Summary.
Hodgkinson, Anthony W.
Presented is an abridgement of the Final Report on Phase I of the North Reading Screen Education Project, including chapters concerning the following: purpose, scope and procedure of the project; description and evaluations of courses, 1967-68 and 1968-69; evaluation of the students; principal investigator's commentary and assessment. Within this report broader and more general implications exist concerning the relationships of technology, society and education. The Project's experiences in North Reading indicate how the educational process must be responsive to the changing patterns of experience. The important role the students played in these changes and how the impact of the new media provided a change and process-conscious set of experiences for the student made possible a clearer and more thoroughly understood relationship of self to the environment. In order to respond to the changes that will occur as a result of the impact of the new media, an increased level of investigation is suggested. A related document is ED 036 205. (Author/LS)
