Educational Communication in a Revolutionary Age.
Tyler, I. Keith, Comp.; Williams, Catharine M., Comp.
As a tribute to Dr. Edgar Dale on his retirement from Ohio State University, the papers in this book refer to "the failures of education,""the impotence of the school,""the need for sweeping change," the existence of a "systems break," and "incipient civil war," all of which are products of an age of revolution which continues today. Educational communication is explored and the need for a common rhetoric is examined. The role of media is seen as one of revelation in "the direction of increased social orientation, art and humanities, and social control of technology." Chapters include "Minds at Large in an Age of Revolution," by Robert W. Wagner; "Educational Communication in a Revolutionary Age," by Charles F. Hoban; "Revolution in Education," by Robert J. Havighurst; "It Seems to Come in Waves," by Wilbert H. Pearson; "Higher Education in the Age of Communications," by Mitoji Nishimoto; "Things to Come: The New Literacy," by Edgar Dale; "Educational Evaluation in the Revolutionary Age," by Ralph W. Tyler; "Curriculum Planning for the Revolutionary Age," by John I. Goodlad; and "Reading in the Electronic Age," by Jeanne Chall. Several of the chapters are followed by a commentary written by other notable figures, i.e., Harry A. Johnson, William Van Til, Stanley M. Elam, Albert Rosenburg, John M. Brewer, and Arthur Foshay.
