Interactive Videodisc for Special Education Technology. Final Report.
Utah State Univ., Logan.
This report provides a summary of the 2-year IVSET (Interactive Videodisc for Special Education Technology ) project which refined microcomputer and videodisc system hardware, produced instructional packages, and investigated the system effectiveness. These activities built on the achievements of a pilot project which had developed a preliminary microcomputer videodisc system and an initial prototype instructional package for self-paced, individualized instruction for handicapped students. The report specifically discusses project objectives and activities; hardware and software systems; the instructional programs for time-telling, coin identification, word recognition, directional prepositions, and beginning sight reading; videodisc production and programming processes; IVSET staff experiences in producing interactive videodisc programs; and field test results. Nineteen dissemination presentations and publications are listed. Appendices contain the user's guide to the microcomputer/videodisc system; objectives, prerequisite skills and script samples for the instructional programs; information on the installation and operation of the light interrupt touch panel; and a description of a system for the development and presentation of interactive videodisc instruction. Thirty tables and figures are provided. (LMM)
