  • 5. 1940’s- 1950’sWorld War II –Major Influence
  • 6. Post-World War II & Instructional Technology
    Focus on research and intent of instructional media equipment and how it can best be used to affect learning situations
    Growth and depth of Audiovisual research for next decade post-war
    National Defense Act funded research in media and curriculum development
    Limited data had been collected during the active phase of development of these instructional media advances; therefore, there was limited knowledge of the overall effectiveness and efficiency of these materials on learning retention
  • 7. 1950’s -1960’sMilitary influence on Industry Training
  • 8. 1950’s-1960’sInstructional Television & Early Computers
    This was an active period of exploration of the Television and its uses in educational and training arenas
    Growth of Instructional Television
    242 Television channels set aside by the FCC for educational purposes
    Ford Foundation grant offered support to the growth of this technology

    Adaptive teaching resources were also beginning to be developed, yet not widely available or accessible
  • 9. 1970’s-1980’s
    Graduate programs in instructional design were begun as universities across the nation in response to growing interest and demand for instructional technology
    Process orientation assigned to viewpoints of Instructional Design and Technology
    Evaluation of ID & T from a more scientific focus with development of theories and models to describe the field
    Employers began to look at ways to enhance human performance through training using instructional materials intertwined with technology in order to provide more opportunities for professional development
  • 10. 1970’s 1980’s Cont.Shift in reference and terminology surrounding the ID & T Field
  • 11. 1980’s-early 1990’s
    Microcomputers were available to general public resulted in increased interest as an instructional tool
    Gained educator interest; limited resistance early on. .
    Student access to computers increased
    Internet emerged as a tool to be integrated into instructional design scope
  • 12. 1990’s
    Distance learning platforms gain some ground and popularity with busy learners and for organizations with a focus on professional development for their staff in non-traditional learning formats

    Technology plays pivotal role in Military advances and instruction
