Abstract:

A study was made to determine whether film demonstrations are as effective as a live demonstration in teaching a skill. Loops of film demonstrating tumbling skills were projected in the lighted gymnasium for the film-taught groups. Instructor-taught groups were taught by an experienced gymnastic instructor using conventional teaching methods. From the testing of seventy-nine students who were taught the skills it was found that 1 film-taught groups learned skills without an experienced instructor. 2 live instruction was superior to film instruction. The advantage can be attributed to coaching See SDC 269-7-25. 3 using film loops instructors with a minimum amount of training and experience can teach skills effectively. The findings of this research confirm previous indications that film demonstrations of a skill are as effective as a live instructors demonstration.
