The primary purpose of this project was to compile, translate, and publish educational media research material from the major Asian countries and to make that information available in the United States. Educational media research and experimentation is interpreted to include experimental programming, testing, evaluation, and use of all the newer media of communication including broadcast and closed-circuit television, radio, motion pictures, audio recordings, slides, filmstrips, and other projected materials. Ten countries were selected to participate directly in the survey--Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaya, New Zealand, Philippines, Republic of China, Republic of Korea, and Thailand--and a local representative was selected as the Project Advisor. Section I is a brief report of the overall educational situation in the Far East. Section II is a country-by-country report of educational media progress written by the individual Advisors. Section III is a summary of the deliberations of the one-week Tokyo conference of Advisors concerning the potentialities of conducting international media research and experimentation in Asia. Section IV is the compilation of the research abstracts and case studies. An appendix provides a directory of organizations conducting or capable of conducting media research in the Far East and South Pacific. (Contains 4 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
