This study is one of several examining the history and background of instructional technology in American education. The period, 1650 to the end of the 19th century, was chosen rather arbitrarily to cover technological developments other than conventional audio-visual devices involving photography and sound techniques. Material in this report is based on primary and secondary sources at the Library of Congress, the library of the U.S. Office of Education, the NEA archive collection, and several university libraries. This bulletin presents the skeleton of that portion of the history of instructional technology in American education which deals with technological developments other than projection and recording, rather than a definitive history, in three parts: (1) Colonial Period--school architecture, school furniture, instructional apparatus (quills, ink, paper), the hornbook, and textbooks; (2) American Revolution to the Civil War--technological development, trends in education, school apparatuses, the blackboard, globes and maps, the abacus and the numeral frame, the textbook movement, and other topics; and (3) Civil War to 1900--attitude toward educational technology, dissemination of knowledge about educational technology, opposition to advancing educational technology, the magic lantern and stereoscope, and so on. Appended is a bibliography of books, school equipment catalogues, public documents, articles and essays, and unpublished studies. (Contains 122 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
