Monday Muse: Jenny Godfrey

  1. 1. Learning Resources (a somewhat personal history)
  2. 2. Books are one of our first learning resources. In the 1950’s they had black and white illustrations Books in the 1950’s might boast one or two colour illustrations and a coloured dust cover but the pictures inside mostly looked like this
  3. 3. In the 1950’s the family television was also black and white and on a very small screenSome people worried that watching toomuch television was harmful but this ladysaw it as a learning resource (she turnedout to be right)
  4. 4. Artists and Designers know that exploring and playing with the materialworld is a learning experience that can continue beyond childhood In Singapore in the late 1950’s I experienced the world in full Technicolor
  5. 5. Back in the UK in the early 1960’s in secondary schools a new learning resource had appeared………. The Audio-Visual Aid
  6. 6. In the 1960’s and 70’s (before photocopiers in schools) if teachers wanted tocirculate information they used the Banda machine. The sheets it producedwere a very pungent learning resource
  7. 7. In 1970 I went to University to study Fine Artcolour illustrationswere very smallcompared to todaymany of my artbooks were stillmostly illustrated inblack and white The revelations all came in the slide lectures
  8. 8. So it was all rather fortunate for me that after an apprenticeshipin the Book Library I became a Slide Librarian
