A program to advance audio-visual education in Jewish schools has been developed by Yeshiva University with the expansion of its Audio-Visual Service, it was announced today by Dr. Samuel Belkin, president.

“While significant progress has been made in promoting audio-visual education in our public schools, we have been aware, for a long time, of the dearth of material and especially educational direction in this area in the Jewish schools throughout the nations,” Dr. Belkin said.

“It is car plan for the present to concentrate our efforts in this direction, where very little has been done to date,” he added. “Although we have already produced several records as teaching aids, we plant to carry forth additional programs through the use of other instruments of audio-visual education. The use of audio-visual materials in the eschewals is an effective instrument for making learning more meaningful and facilities the clarification of idea and the influencing of attitudes for children,” Dr. Belkin pointed out.
