Communication Media and Technology: A Look at Their Role in Non-Formal Education Programs.
Ingle, Henry T.
Presented as a paper at the 1974 Conference on Non-Formal Education held at the Michigan State University, this bulletin contains selective digests of not readily available, unpublished and published documents, research reports, summaries, descriptive articles, conference reports, international surveys, and observer or participant reports on the use of communication media and technology in nonformal educational projects around the world. Specific instances are cited, with emphasis on projects in the less developed areas, which might serve as tentative guidelines for future development. The first section discusses the need for a nonformal approach to education and how this might be combined with other formal and informal learning opportunities. The second section deals with the types of media and technology currently in use including TV, radio, traditional folk media, games and simulation techniques, audio cassettes, programed instruction, and multimedia approach.
