TELEVISION AND THE CONTINUING EDUCATION OF TEACHERS, A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF THE POTENTIAL OF NETWORK TELEVISION FOR DISSEMINATION OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH INFORMATION. FINAL REPORT.
CRESHKOFF, LAWRENCE
THIS 3-PHASE STUDY SOUGHT TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE PRODUCER OF NEW EDUCATIONAL IDEAS AND THE PRACTITIONER, OR TEACHER, BY EFFECTIVE USE OF NETWORK TELEVISION. PHASE I, DATA GATHERING, INCLUDED REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE, AND IDENTIFICATION OF INNOVATIONAL PROJECTS BY CONSULTATION, FIELD VISITS, AND A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO MEMBERS OF 2 NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. AS A RESULT, MORE THAN 125 INNOVATIONAL ACTIVITIES WERE STUDIED. IN PHASE II, TEACHERS IN A NATIONAL "ACCIDENTAL" SAMPLE ANSWERED A QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGNED TO IDENTIFY THEIR AREAS OF INTEREST IN TEACHER EDUCATION. OVER 1100 RESPONDENTS EMPHASIZED THEIR INTEREST IN LEARNING MOTIVATION AND HELPING CHILDREN LEARN TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY. THUS, PHASE III WAS THE PRODUCTION OF A SAMPLE FILM IN THE PROPOSED TV SERIES FOR TEACHERS, ORGANIZED AROUND TEACHING PROBLEMS RATHER THAN CURRICULUM. USING A GRADE 3 SCIENCE CLASS AND A GRADE 9 GEOGRAPHY CLASS, THE FILM DEMONSTRATES EFFECTIVE TEACHING TECHNIQUES. THE STUDY RECOMMENDS A WEEKLY, FLEXIBLE-FORMAT TV SERIES TO DISCUSS EDUCATIONAL INNOVATIONS USEFUL TO TEACHERS AT ALL GRADE LEVELS AND IN ALL SUBJECT AREAS. APPENDICES PRESENT 58 ABSTRACTS OF INNOVATIONAL PROJECTS, QUESTIONNAIRES, AND THE FILM TRANSCRIPT. (LH)
