Videos: Selecting Only the Best.
Sooh, Mary
This paper describes a video selection process that will assure educational practitioners of getting the most for their money; examines the steps necessary in an effective evaluation; and explains how to implement those steps. Teachers and librarians are advised to have more than one person evaluate a program, perhaps another teacher or students who will be using videotapes. The aspects of a video to be taken into consideration are briefly discussed, including production values, whether it comes with a teacher's guide, whether it encourages students to interact with the program, the accuracy and currency of the information being presented, whether the manner of presentation makes the material easy to understand, the pedagogical techniques used, the pacing of the program, whether it is fee from bias, and whether it supports the desired curriculum objectives. A program evaluation form for teacher use is attached. (ALF)
