Kaleidoscope: Emerging Patterns in Media. Highlights of the December 1970 CEC San Antonio Conference.
McDonald, Phyllis L., Ed.; And Others
The report of highlights of the conference on Instructional Technology in the Education of Exceptional Children presents innovative ideas in the field of media useful to teachers and program administrators. Specific classroom applications of various media are described to illustrate the concepts that media give exceptional students new communications modalities, enhance teacher communication skills, add new dimensions to learning and teaching, and make individualized instruction a reality. Also reported are planning ideas and problems, and suggestions for planning instructional systems, delivery systems (instructional resource centers), development of instructional materials, and support for teachers in their use of media. Emphasized is the systems analysis approach to organized planning and the critical role of feedback. The final section describes projects and plans for mediated teacher training packages designed to solve problems related to the increasing number of trainees, the need for on-the-job training, and the need to provide necessary evaluation and feedback. Numerous photographs illustrate the applications of media described. (KW)
