Educational Media Technician: A Suggested Two-Year Post High School Curriculum.
State Univ. of New York, Alfred. Agricultural and Technical Coll.
The first portion of the guidelines discusses the need to train educational technicians for the field of communications (including education, instructions, industrial organizations or agencies), in order to meet changing educational techniques and the increasing number of resources for learning. A detailed curriculum guide is presented for a two-year post high school program to train educational media technicians in educational technology dealing in visual and audio communication and to give them a knowledge of the uses of media and production equipment. Technical courses are presented first, followed by general education courses and auxiliary technical courses. Five areas of the media are taught: graphics, design, photo/cinematography, television, reprography, and media equipment. A detailed description is presented of each course with the number of hours needed for each divided according to laboratory hours, class hours, and outside study. Texts and references and related media are suggested for each course. Equipment and facilities needed to supply this type of program are described, including estimates of materials and supplies needed for the laboratory and to be purchased by the student. Appended materials include: a bibliography; lists of professional societies and agencies, periodicals, and sources of media; and laboratory plans. (EC)
