Project to Determine the Use of Media Resources in Vocational-Technical and Adult Education. Final Report.
Igl, David H.
To increase media utilization in Wisconsin's vocational-technical education districts, a study was made to determine factors that impede or enhance the use of media and a program was set up to implement the study findings. Following a literature review and surveys of educators, an inservice workshop was developed to teach applications of instructional technology in vocational-technical education and to motivate teachers to use the technology. Attitudes of participants before and after the workshop were tested, with more positive attitudes being evidenced after the workshop. As a result of the media utilization survey and the instructional technology inservice workshop, it was concluded that; (1) the existing audiovisual service programs in the Wisconsin vocational-technical system have been successful in acquainting teachers with the more common types of media but have not developed teacher competence in planning the optimum use of instructional media, and (2) inservice teacher training can be used successfully on the vocational-technical school level in Wisconsin, and the attitude of teachers toward instructional technology can be improved through inservice workshops. Forms used in the study project, data collected from the survey, and other materials are appended. (MF)
