K-12 Planning Guide for Videodisc Usage for Teachers and Administrators. 1995 Edition.
This guide is intended for K-12 educators who are planning to implement videodisc technology into a school's educational curriculum. Teachers need expertise in two areas for the success of interactive video in schools. First, they need to be able to integrate videodisc materials into existing curricula. Second, they need skills for reviewing, evaluating, and selecting software and hardware. Chapter 1, "Background Information," addresses issues such as levels of interactivity; comparison of videodiscs; use of barcodes; and players controlled by computer. Topics that curriculum planners must address are the focus of chapter 2, "Issues in Planning and Selection," including instructional justification; teacher training; technical services support; sophistication of users; accountability; life-cycle costs; preview, evaluation, and selection; hardware; and videodisc instructional resources. Chapter 3, "Videodisc Applications," contains specific data to be used to determine curriculum fit by three different categories: system requirements, grade level, and subject area. Several pages of comments and speculation comprise chapter 4, "Future Implications." The guide ends with a conclusion, glossary, and an 18-page appendix providing a videodisc index by grade level.
