Laser Videodiscs and the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Videodiscs have much to offer in developing the school curriculum, but teachers must use definite criteria in planning teaching-learning situations that will enable students to achieve on an individual basis. Thus, students should find meaning, interest, purpose, provision for individual differences, and a balance among objectives in their learning activities. Diverse philosophies of education may be utilized in videodisc technology; i.e., realism, experimentalism, idealism, and existentialism may be stressed as philosophies of education to provide direction and guidance in teaching-learning situations. The psychology of learning also needs to be utilized to assist each student to achieve as much as possible. Thus a behavioristic approach and considerable student input in ongoing lessons and units should be used to provide logical and psychological curricula, as well as inductive procedures to lead students to make relevant generalizations, and deductive teaching to assist them in moving from a generalization to its specifics.
