Abstract: The beneficial effects of a war are hard to find, but it is evident that the struggle for victory gives great impetus to technological research. The futuristic rocket plane that fascinated the youthful reader is now an actuality. In other fields, important advances may be less evident and perhaps less dramatic, but they are no less significant. One of these in the current struggle is the effective use made by the armed services of audio and visual materials for instruction. The war time application of these tools for learning will have a lasting influence upon peacetime education. It would be incorrect, however, to imply that the military have pioneered or played the major role in utilizing these techniques. Long before the war, alert educators were aware of the possibilities, and in numerous school systems and universities fundamental procedures were evolved. The personnel that planned the emergency use of audio and visual techniques was recruited, in many instances, from the classrooms of the nation. Imaginative teachers have always sought and used teaching aids.
