HOW TELEVISION CAN TRAIN YOUR TEACHERS.
EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION MAY SOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF TEACHER INSERVICE TRAINING. IN SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, 21 SCHOOL DISTRICTS HAVE COOPERATED IN PRODUCING A TEACHER INSERVICE PROGRAM. THE TELEVISION CENTER OF THE STATE COLLEGE PRODUCES AND DIRECTS THE TELECASTS. A COMMERCIAL TELEVISION STATION DONATES ITS FACILITIES AND AIR TIME. A PERMANENT TELEVISION COORDINATING COUNCIL DETERMINES THE PROGRAM FROM DISTRICT REQUESTS AND PUBLISHES SCHEDULES. TELEVISION TEACHERS FROM THE COLLEGE PREPARE 30-MINUTE PROGRAMS AND A STUDY GUIDE FOR THE VIEWERS. THE TELECASTS ARE PRESENTED TO THE TEACHERS IN THE SAME WAY A TEACHER WOULD PRESENT THE MATERIAL TO HER STUDENTS THUS THE TEACHERS LEARN BOTH SUBJECT MATTER AND TEACHING TECHNIQUES. TELECASTS ARE SHOWN ONCE A WEEK. AFTERWARDS, TEACHERS CONDUCT WORKSHOPS. THE LOCAL TELEVISION STATION PREPARES KINESCOPES OF THE TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR TEACHERS WHO MISS THE TELECASTS. THE FILMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE ORIENTATION OF NEW TEACHERS, FOR CURRICULUM STUDY GROUPS, AND FOR REVIEW. ADVANTAGES OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION ARE THAT TELEVISION IS A CONVENIENT MEDIUM, IT MAKES THE RESOURCES OF INSERVICE TRAINING AVAILABLE, IT GIVES EVERY TEACHER ACCESS TO SPECIALISTS, AND IT COSTS LESS THAN 10 DOLLARS PER TEACHER PER YEAR INCLUDING THE PRODUCTION OF KINESCOPE RECORDINGS AND STUDY GUIDES.
