Authentic Integration of Video Technology To Reinforce the National Science Education Standards in Advanced Placement Science Classes in Low Socio-Economic Schools.
Myers, Mark D.
This report discusses a proposed research project to study the integration of video technology to reinforce the National Science Education Standards in Advanced Placement (AP) classes in low socio-economic schools in Indiana. The report begins with overviews of AP in Indiana, the National Science Education Standards, and research relevant to the applications of video technology in science classrooms. Three project objectives are then discussed: (1) to measure the achievement levels of students who are exposed to authentically integrated audiovisual materials; (2) to examine the achievement in AP science classes and look at the effects of video instruction on gender; and (3) to classify students as field-independent or field-dependent and measure achievement levels based on AP test scores and grade point averages.
