Summary

This quantitative, descriptive research study measured the attitudes of preservice teachers toward the selection and use of instructional media in the classroom. Two groups were involved in the study: approximately 168 students enrolled in formal training in the selection and utilization of instructional media, and approximately 170 preservice teachers completing their student teaching requirement. A preassessment instrument was designed to obtain data on the subjects, and an attitude survey was developed that contained eight specific categories to measure the subjects' degree of agreement toward the selection and utilization of instructional media. These categories were: (1) the contribution media can make to instruction; (2) the positive attributes of instructional media; (3) the future use of instructional media; (4) taking a required course in instructional media; (5) present attitude toward teaching with instructional media; (6) the conditions of using instructional media; (7) course specific perceptions; and (8) attitudes toward systematic lesson planning techniques. Five hypotheses were tested. The preassessment profile indicated that the subjects enrolled in formal training of instructional media began the course with no skills or experience in using the selected media, materials, or formal lesson planning techniques. Based on the final results of the study, it was concluded that a formal course in the selection and utilization of instructional media can function as a primary factor in the development of students' attitudes in a positive direction, and that the most frequently used of the 10 media listed were the personal computer, overhead projector, and television. A discussion of the implications of these findings and suggestions for future study complete this report. (40 references) (BBM)
