Van Gigch, John P.; Hill, Richard E. (1971). Using Systems Analysis to Implement Cost-Effectiveness and Program Budgeting in Education.
Program budgeting is an effective tool in helping school administrators and faculty to draw up budgets which reflect their own needs and those of their clients. The "systems approach" can be used to draw up a program budget systematically. Part I outlines systems concepts and the systems approach as they can be applied to education. Also, the goal-setting process needed to integrate the objectives of all participants (teachers, administrators, students, parents, community, etc.) in the decision-making process is described. Part II deals with the step-by-step process of developing programs and program alternatives which can be used to compare the value of the various alternatives. These measures can also be used as a basis to apply judgment and to debate the non-quantifiable merits of the program alternatives. The systems approach and its related cousin, program budgeting, are shown to provide a practical methodology for the design of school programs.

VanderMeer, A. W. (1970). How Teachers and Administrators Can Be Given a Better Indoctrination on the Potentialities and Uses of Instructional Technology.
The strategy for giving educators a more solid and sophisticated indoctrination in the uses and possibilities of technology in education must aim at the reduction of the extreme points of view of the pertisans and opponents of technology. A. W. VanderMeer sees the prospective teacher as a professional with a thorough grasp, not only of every aspect of educational technology, but also of humanistic studies, behavioral sciences, and of the wide range of content to be taught within the discipline of the teacher's competence. The prospective teacher, in his training, should be creatively and self-consciously involved in a system of education which will establish in him those professional techniques and ways of study and operation that typify the manner in which applied social scientists apply their professions. | [FULL TEXT]

Verduin-Muller, Henriette (1972). Tele-Blackboard. The Contribution of New Media to Education in Developing Countries.
The tele-blackboard is an audiovisual system, the core of which is a tableau on which is put a normal piece of paper. The paper is written on with a pencil that goes with the tableau, and the visual information is transformed into narrow banded signals which are sent simultaneously with a verbal explanation by normal longwave radio transmitters. Visual and verbal information are thus transmitted across long distances at very low cost and can be received by normal radio and television receivers with special adapter. The tele-blackboard was designed for instruction in developing countries. It requires prior preparation of short, well organized teaching phases and high concentration by the pupils, while at the same time releasing the teacher from the anxiety of being on television. Other advantages offered by the tele-blackboard are the opportunity its use provides to develop original and modern forms of fundamental education, the reduction of loss of information which verbal information alone is subject to (particularly when the language used in the presentation is a second language for the students), and the capacity for producing dynamic content and concepts.

Three pilot projects are described: (1) a United Nations funded project in Rajasthan, India; (2) a Tanzanian project involving several villages; and (3) the Skyriver, Alaska project. As demonstrated by these three projects, videotaping technology shows potential for opening direct lines of communication between rural people and government agencies, gives villagers an opportunity to see themselves as part of a community, and raises community activism through participation in the formulation of community problems and solutions. However, the video technology must be part of a systematic process suited to local conditions before it can fulfill its potential.

Vierling, Jacqueline S.; Shivaram, M. (1970). On-Line Computer Managed Instruction; The First Step. AFIPS Conference Proceedings. Volume 37.
The major features of Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) are diagnosis and testing, analysis, record keeping, and prescription. Diagnosis and testing are used to evaluate each student's performance at regular intervals. The results are analyzed to update the student's record and provide a prescription which suggests the learning process the student should pursue to achieve his objectives. The CMI system described here was used during a one-semester, multimedia physics course at the U.S. Naval Academy. The purpose was to develop and examine the first phase in a CMI system: diagnosis, testing, analysis, and record keeping. The system was used on a remote terminal connected by phone lines to a time-shared system. Each week students took a pre-test and a post-test on the objectives for that week. Results of these tests and a student's rating of the confidence he placed in his answers were input to the computer for storage and analysis by processes described here. The first step of CMI was achieved and proved to be efficient and flexible.

Final conclusions of a nationwide study of the use of the phonoviewer in the Expanded Foods and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) are given to supplement data and specific conclusions in two earlier reports. Based on mailed questionnaires returned from EFNEP coordinators, nutrition specialists, and a sample of county home economists augmented by a study of use by EFNEP aides and reaction of youth and adult programs participants, it is held that the phonoviewer has justified the investment in purchase of instruments and shows and the development of shows. Specific findings about the use of instruments and shows, along with user reaction, are given. Seventeen conclusions summarized the directors' recommendations for further implementation of the program. | [FULL TEXT]
Voigt, Melvin J. (1970). The Undergraduate Library; The Collection and its Selection.
There is a direct relationship between the care with which the book collection is developed and the success of the library. Questions which must be answered before developing a selection policy statement include: How large, broad or intensive should the periodical collection be? What should the policy be on back files of periodicals? On periodical indexes? Also basic questions on audio materials must be answered. A policy statement must also take into account the hard facts of what an institution can and will do in supporting the program. In addition, the policy statement should spell out the methods of selection development to be used, including the extent and manner in which faculty and nonlibrary staff will be used. Initial undergraduate collections vary in size from 15,000 to 60,000 volumes, with maximums expected ranging from 62,900 to 200,000. The size of the institution, availability of research collections and other libraries and the nature of educational programs are factors which help govern the size and nature of the undergraduate library collection.
