Use of Video-Cassette Summaries of Childhood in Teaching Developmental Psychology.
Silvestro, John R.
A series of five video-cassettes showing children from ages three to eight years was developed for use in an undergraduate developmental psychology course. Each cassette was viewed on an optional basis, with extra credit toward student's final grade awarded for viewing. Study guides accompanied each cassette. An evaluation of the effectiveness of the video-cassette system suggested positive results in terms of overall participation, perceived quality of the cassettes, and value in improving understanding of the course. The elective nature of the cassette program was preferred. (Author)
