Proceedings of the Conference on Use of Media in Educating the Handicapped (Coral Gables, Florida, May 20-21, 1971).
Miami Univ., Coral Gables, FL.
Seven papers concerning use of media in educating handicapped children are presented. Given the learning problems of handicapped children, Philip H. Mann urges teachers to explore a wide variety of media as an aid to education. The proliferation of media and materials need not provide an insurmountable problem to the teacher, according to Marguerite A. Follett, who suggests that selection of tools may be simplified by understanding the uniqueness of the individual learner and his educational needs. Frank C. Stuart then recommends the use of closed circuit television in higher education courses, especially courses required of a large number of students. Television as an effective educational device for utilization in the teaching-learning process is discussed by Henry Hubinger. John A. Fiske then provides an overview of instructional technology and recommends systems planning in educational planning and use of instructional media. A brief discussion of micro-teaching and educational communications by James D. Wells is followed by a list of 25 uses for the videotape recorder within special education programs. The concluding paper by Vernon Bronson focuses on instructional communication for specialists and administrators. (CB)
