It was the purpose of this study to (1) learn the types of aids used in a selected group of small schools; (2) determine to what extent audio-visual aids were used; and (3) identify some major purposes prompting the use of these aids.
It appeared desirable that a study be made which would further clarify such items as utilization, types of aids and the purpose for using these particular aids in teaching.
There is apparently a great recognition of the importance of audio-visual aids in all educational efforts. The importance of this study may be based on such factors as (1) increasing one's ability to do more effective class work; (2) being resourceful in one's attempt to convey information; (3) correlating related subject matter; and (4) broadening one's concept in the area of new ideas.
The importance of a study of this nature appears to be centered on an idea of knowing that certain teachers have used audio-visual aids effectively. It also reveals the types of aids used by some teachers. The study alos furnishes reasons for the utilization of particular aids. It will broaden one's conception of audio-visual aids.
This study has been intended to serve as a background for teachers that would like to effectively use audio-visual materials.
