Interactive Video Symposium: The Singer or the Song--An Extension of Clark's Media Research Discussion.
Grabowski, Barbara L.
An introduction to a symposium on interactive video, this brief paper announces that the symposium will continue the debate on whether media are simply delivery vehicles for instruction by considering the inherent properties of interactive video and its impact on achievement, including the way in which the properties of this medium both dictate the form of the transmitted message and influence the way a student processes information. An analogy is drawn in which the medium is equated with the singer and the message with the song. It is also announced that this discussion will be provided from several points of view by the five symposium speakers: (1) Richard E. Clark, University of Southern California; (2) Michael A. Yacci, Rochester Institute of Technology; (3) Claudia Pask-McCartney, Syracuse University; (4) Elisa J. Slee, Syracuse University; and (5) Barbara L. Grabowski, Syracuse University.
