Levine, S. Joseph
Tape cartridges for use by special education teachers are analyzed according to design, effective use, and availability. Basic operating principles of cassette and continuous loop tape cartridges are described and illustrated. Advantages of tape cartridges are indicated, such as the following: the position is saved on tape during student timeouts, and handicapped students easily learn difficult concepts or involved sequential instructions. Other attractive features cited are low maintenance, low cost, storage considerations, size, and portability. Two playback only machines recommended are the Play Tape and the General Electric Tape Player (#G3700). Also mentioned is the PlayTape custom laboratory (address supplied) which produces tapes from teacher reel recordings. Additionally included is a list of cartridge players and recorders giving manufacturer, address, model, size, price, and features. (MC)
