A Study to Determine Teacher Perceptions in Relation to Educational Media.
Lewis, Edward Eugene
The purpose of this study was to test the relationships between identified independent variables of teachers' age, sex, years of experience, grade level, formal training, and identified dependent variables of future training plans, concepts, and attitudes toward educational media. A questionnaire was administered during the 1968-69 school year to an entire school system in a large city which yielded a 53% return. The instrument was designed to obtain information regarding past educational media experiences, current awareness of media and media personnel, and use of educational media. Results were analyzed through the use of Chi-square computation. The data is summarized into a set of 17 statements concerning teachers and their use of educational media in the classroom. Some recommendations are made based on the results of this study. A list of references and samples of material used in the study are appended. (JY)
