Abstract: Methods of presenting various kinds of educational materials to students have undergone many changes in recent years. That form of instruction in which the teacher presented most of the information verbally, and often presented it without much concern or interest in her pupils, has gradually given way to more stimulating and efficient methods of instruction. These include the use of audio-visual aids which enlist the sensory facilities of sight and hearing to make a more adequate interpretation of verbal communication. This new type of instruction is the result of constant demands by the public for greater efficiency in our school systems. More funds for instruction are made available now than in previous years and educators have been told to show improved results. Education is the continuous process whereby the functioning of the human mind is progressively improved, and is the total result of reaction by the human brain to sensory experiences. Anything that facilitates the acquisition of knowledge is desirable.
