Summary

Improvements in audiovisual machines have produced such effective electronic materials as projectors, films and filmstrips, slides, tranparencies, visual tapes, recordings, broadcast and closed circuit television, language laboratories, and teaching machines. The utilization of language laboratories in teaching foreign languages seems to aid students in reading, vocabulary, and grammar more than in reading comprehension and speaking ability. The school curriculum should be revised to adapt to the changes of society and to new technological advances. Instructional materials can control the curriculum and cut unnecessary and repetitious drill by teaching some skills more effectively. However, problems of conformity and boredom may result from the of technology in instruction. Users of technological media in elementary schools should be cautioned as to whether it will improve a child's way of thinking and developing. Special attention should be given to proper selection and training of the staff, more flexible instructional procedures, establishment of specific goals, correct allocation of finances, and balanced program curriculum. Planning for the technological changes in building design, construction, and staffing should be flexible and adaptable, it should include the entire resources of the community. Definitive educational specifications should be developed, and these should be related to new media in the learning process and to cost analysis. Participants in the work conference are listed. This report was presented to the work conference in curriculum, instruction, and administration, (Denver, July 3-21, 1961).
