Abstract:

Media selection is the process of minimizing the costs due to media acquisition, use, or maintenance while maximizing the likelihood of consistent instructional effectiveness. Media selection for aircrew training involves two major categories of media Media intended for use in learning centers, ranging from workbooks to computer-assisted instruction and Simulator or training devices which are intended to provide hands-on practice. Factors which must be considered in the media selection process include cost, ability of a device to implement specific instructional strategies, motivating capabilities, and the popularity of the media device with the student population. Some of the constraints to be considered in the F-16 environment include the necessity of premature media decisions, the late arrival of training devices, the varying availability of media cross training sites, the existing media production facilities, the tentative nature of the instructional content, the required mixture of type A and B aircraft, and the varying availability of flight time across training sites. The media selection process is a dynamic one and the procedures described extend over the lifetime of the F-16 training system. To aid in the standardization and documentation of the media selection process, a set of forms are provided which assist in the data collection and decision-making steps.
