Summary

Many new resources are available in education today. The author offers an evaluation of these resources, including their cost effectiveness. He discusses the resistance to change which has slowed acceptance of new forms of educational technology. He presents a table listing the major media of educational technology available today, together with a brief description of the strengths, weaknesses, and costs of each. Using the information listed in the table, he demonstrates the factors which must be considered in choosing an instructional aid. He evaluates in depth instructional television and computer assisted instruction. Using a series of fictional examples, he suggests an approach to decision making on new instructional media in educational systems at various levels--school, school system, college, university, state system of higher education, national educational system, and international education. A reference list is provided. (JY)
