Says A- V Use Will Change Teacher Role Increasing use of audio-vis-ual (A-V) materials in today's schools made possible through various federal programs will change considerably the role of many classroom teachers. That was the picture presented by Dean L. C. Larson, director of the A-V center at Indiana University. He spoke at a banquet which closed the six-week Educational Media Institute here. Larson said school use of A-V equipment films, closed-circuit television and displays received a boost through the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) and will again be increased by the new Higher Education Act. Through A-V media, he said, the teacher can "call upon many experts and authorities" to enrich his courses. The teacher, he added, may become more of "an observer, listener and watcher" along with the class. The job of the instructor will be "to test and evaluate, to be an educational diagnostician." Interest in A-V techniques was stimulated during the war, Larson said, when rapid...
