Handbook and Catalog for Instructional Media Selection.
Boucher, Brian G.; And Others
As a result of an extensive reevaluation of a systematic approach to media selection made for the United States Navy, this catalog investigates commercially available devices to help media specialists, curriculum designers, and teachers to make informed decisions about educational hardware. The recommended procedure is first to analyze learning objectives, then determine appropriate media types and select the best specific instrument. To facilitate this the first section analyzes learning objectives in terms of the information given to and the behavior expected of the learner, the sense modality (visual, auditory, etc.) of the presentation and learner response, and the nature of feedback and interaction. Next, a media capabilities matrix is developed to provide a framework for gauging the abilities of the various media types to satisfy learning objectives. Then, general types of media are described, followed by a rating of specific devices for specific purposes. This allows educators to match technological solutions to educational problems, to see the constraints on matches, and to use the standardized descriptions to compare makes and models. (PB)
