Instructional and Extracurricular Use of Video-Tapes.
Kay, Ruth; Kay, Jack
As an aid in integrating videotape procedures into effective speech communication programs, this report discusses the advantages and disadvantages of videotaping, provides guidelines for the use and purchase of equipment, and suggests classroom and extracurricular activities involving videotape. After indicating several positive characteristics, including the ability to attract students' attention and motivate them to correct problems in their speech performances, the report suggests certain limitations in videotaping. It then provides practical guidelines for videotape use and identifies important considerations in selecting equipment--effectiveness as a teaching tool, demand on instructors' time, and cost. Finally, it lists 15 videotape activities for the speech classroom, such as using the camera's zoom capacity to point out annoying gestures and videotaping group discussions, and 10 extracurricular activities, including critiquing a videotape of a state championship debate.
