What Is Educational Technology?
Ingle, Henry T.
Instructional Technology Report, n11 Jun 1975
Featured in this issue are the English translations of two speeches delivered to graduate students in educational technology at Pontificia Universidade, Porto Alegre, Brazil. Henry Ingle defines educational technology in the traditional as well as modern sense, describes its essential elements, and discusses situations in which the use of technology is most appropriate and efficient. He also provides a formula for failure in educational technology developed from practical experience. Thereza Penna Firme discusses the role of television as a technology in the lives of children, comments on the importance of the human element in technology, and emphasizes that all educational messages should be simple enough to be understood, relevant, and stimulating. Also in this issue is a description of an experimental audiovisual system called the electronic or tele-blackboard, which transmits scribosonic (combination of speech and writing) signals.
