Let the Kiddeos Play with the Videos and Don't Punt When You're About to Make a Touchdown.
Byers, Robert J.
The Communicator, v4 n2 p13-22 Spring 1973
In developing a case for the acquisition and use of the video tape recorder (VTR), this paper examines four questions: (1) Can VTR be used as a teaching machine? (2) Is there justification for using VTR in the whole school? (3) Can VTR be used with remedial groups? and (4) Are there proven methods of effective use of VTR in speech classrooms? The research done in these areas indicates that at least a partially affirmative answer can be given to all these questions. Results show that the video tape playback of students' communicative acts, which focuses on the audience and is accompanied by instructor and student discussion and criticism, can make a positive contribution toward increasing students' insights into the communicative process and focusing their attention on their audience and the content of their messages.
