Geography and Educational Media: Topics in Geography, Number 3.
National Council for Geographic Education.
This collection of articles is designed to acquaint elementary and secondary school teachers with new educational media and with effective uses of old media. Two articles discuss the media concept and its appropriateness to the study of geography. In several articles, commonly used materials such as wall maps, globes, and elements of the classroom are described and suggestions for their use are given. The still photograph, if clear and forceful, is shown to supplement map and globe studies. Road maps are recommended to facilitate understanding of orientation and scale concepts in lower grades, while concepts of population distribution and topography can be reinforced in upper grades by using overlays on an overhead projector. Following these articles is a description of one innovation in curriculum resource development employing the audio-tutorial approach in which the student interacts individually with learning materials. Next are four short selections in which teachers share some innovative ideas for media use that have been used successfully in their own classrooms. The final two articles present listings of source information on media articles and instructional materials and techniques. (AV)
