An Educator Speaks Teaching Machines Will Aid, Not Replace Teacher in Classroom [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
An Educator Speaks Teaching Machines Will Aid, Not Replace Teacher in Classroom Teaching machines are being developed as aids for teachers, not as replacements for them, according to Dr. Clayton M. Schindler, dean of Kent State University's College of Education. Dr. Schindler believes that these machines, or auto-instruc-tional devices, will definitely play a useful role in future education systems if the problem of programming them can be overcome. The educator points out that schools now experimenting with these devices must make up their own programs. This entails printing lessons and questions on revolving scrolls or tapes which are placed before the student on tiny television-type screens in the machines. "At present our public school teachers are overloaded with regular work from the increasing school population," Dr. Schindler said. "They just can't find sufficient time to gather material for the programming necessary to cover course content adequately via teaching machines."...
A Psychologist Predicts Correct Use of 'Machines' Will Revolutionize Education Process [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 29 June 1961
A Psychologist Predicts Correct Use of 'Machines' Will Revolutionize Education Process Perfection of the so-called teaching machines and their related programs will revolutionize the education process throughout the United States within the next ten years if the present rate of progress continues. This is the prediction of Mrs. Idabelle K. Hoose, assistant professor of psychology at Kent State University, and designer of several teaching machines and a program writer. To date, all of the research has been done by psychologists in this country, but international interest is indicated by the large number of inquiries which she has received from universities in England, Scotland, Canada, and Japan. Professor Hoose said, "Teaching machines are not audio-visual aids. They are individual tutors which operate on the 'reinforcement learning theory' in which the machine is analogous to the classroom and the programmed material to the teacher. This is the greatest breakthrough of the century ...

State Universites Need Realistic Appropriations [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 13 July 1961
State Universites Need Realistic Appropriations Governor Michael V. DiSalle's Sunday veto of Ohio's proposed budget for the 1962 fiscal year affords the possibility that when the legislators meet again to consider the budget they will take a realistic view of the needs of higher education in Ohio. Provisions for Kent State University in the vetoed budget were not realistic according to a University administrator. Dr. Robert White, University vice president in charge of academic affairs, said "Although the proposed two-year appropriation was greater than for the previous biennium, the actual financial support per student was approximately five-percent less." He commented, "It seems apparent that the legislators expect us to increase student fees." Although this is one method of solving the University's financial problem, it is not a desirable solution according to Dr. White. He said, "Student fees in Ohio's state universities are already the highest of any state west of the Allegheni...
