Instructional Media Technology in Secondary Education.
Rogers, Dwight L.
This paper reviews the research literature from the early 1980s to the present pertaining to instructional media utilization practices in secondary classrooms, including the challenge for educators in today's schools, the utilization of instructional media technology in the classroom, the impact of teacher training, and the effectiveness of teaching with media in secondary public schools. The literature examined includes journal articles, ERIC documents, dissertation abstracts, and reference books. The review focuses on knowledge about instructional media technology from experts in education and on similar research studies in the field; school and student characteristics that can affect the selection and acceptance of instructional media; and the identification of conditions and implications for effective use of educational media technology in secondary classroom instruction. Previous research studies that have identified relationships between teacher training and the use of various instructional media technologies are examined as a method for evaluating current media utilization practices as they relate to teacher education. Both positive and negative aspects of this research are presented, as well as recommendations by practitioners and researchers for future investigations associated with instructional media technology.
