Audio-Visual Education

Our school has various means of Audio-Visual Education. In schools of today, teachers do not look upon the textbook on an exclusive tool of education. 

AUDIO VISUAL EDUCATION [[set on the left hand side with rest of paragraph on right hand side]]

In order for the pupil to understand the textbook plainly, we have to secure other means to accompany the textbook. These are art materials and tools such as paints, crayons, construction paper, copper and brass foils; motion picture films, both silent and sound; slides and film strips. We secure some of these materials from the Visual Instruction Library. Most modern schools have the use of radios, phonographs, and public address systems. We are happy that here in Birney School we have such equipment.
Most teachers here at Birney have series of maps of the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe, and the Carribean Lands. They also have small globes. Usually, at the end of the school term new maps are secured which are distributed equally among the teachers. We find these maps of untold benefit to us. If you work with maps, globes and other types of Visual Aids you will find them very interesting.
