Abstract
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY IS TO EXAMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF LIMITED TEACHER-AUTHORING USING INTERACTIVE LASER VIDEODISCS OPERATING WITH A MICROCOMPUTER TO TEACH EFL AT THE ENTRY LEVEL. THE APPLICATION WILL BE IN A PRE-EMPLOYMENT VOCATIONAL CONTEXT, SIMILAR TO JOB CLUB ENVIRONMENTS. TEACHER-AUTHORING IN PHASE I WILL BE LIMITED TO POST-TREATMENT, STUDENT ASSESSMENT QUESTIONS. PHASE I EQUIPMENT WILL INCLUDE THE APPLE IIE, A SYSTEM AVAILABLE TO INSTITUTIONS WISHING TO IMPLEMENT CAL. WHILE PHASE II PLANS THE USE OF VTR MATERIAL IN PRE-PRODUCTION, PHASE I WILL USE A COMMERCIAL DISC OF A MOVIE-THE BASIC MEDIA FOR THIS PROJECT THROUGH ALL THREE PHASES. A MODIFIED-CONTROL EVALUATION DESIGN WILL BE USED IN TWO, THREE-WEEK SESSIONS. SO THAT EACH GROUP MAY SERVE AS A CONTROL FOR THE OTHER, DISTINCT LINGUISTIC SKILLS HAVE BEEN SELECTED: DIRECTION OR COMMAND STRUCTURES AND NUMERICAL TERMINOLOGY. TEACHING AND EVALUATION SESSIONS WILL BE OBSERVED BY TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, PARENTS AND BUSINESSMEN. TWO RESEARCH QUESTIONS WILL BE EXAMINED: 1) WHAT AMOUNT OF TEACHER AUTHORING IS BOTH EFFECTIVE AND SIMPLE; AND 2) IN WHAT WAYS CAN THE VIDEO CAPABILITY OF THIS FORMAT AIDE A MULTISKILL, RESTRICTED BRANCHING PROGRAM.
