1984 is Only Nine Years Away; Will School Media Programs Humanize or Dehumanize Schooling?
Belland, John C.
A media program should be developed and integrated into the curriculum at the same rate as print material. Because media are a useful educational aid and should be an extension of the curriculum, the instructional specialist of the future will be a media specialist who can coordinate curriculum and media and also design instructional methods tailored to the student. If the school media center is to fulfill its future goal, all forms of media should effectively merge with the curriculum and the instructional system for the benefit of the learner. Future learning centers should be designed for the retrieval of materials rather than storage, and for the convenience of the patron rather than the staff. Provision for student self expression in production of media materials will be a facet of the future media center. (DS)
