Instructional Media in the Modern School.
Klasek, Charles B.
The "modern school" is sensitive to change, aggressive in its employment of instructional technology, yet totally responsive to and concerned about the individual. Student-centered learning can flourish through use of a systems approach, which can also move media and materials from their present peripheral role in education to an integral position in the learning process. To make effective use of media, teachers must be aware of the vast array of sources of media, establish criteria for the selection of media, evaluate media in terms of their ability to help meet objectives, and then use the media properly. Instructional television, cable television, and instructional television fixed services also offer many possibilities for use in the schools. Resource centers, computers, and satellites also hold much promise. (JK)
