Using Instructional TV.
Wigren, Harold E.
Postulating that instructional television (ITV) is invaluable to the elementary school teacher, this leaflet likens the teacher to the medical practitioner. He diagnoses a learning problem and calls in 'experts' as required, by means of electronics--TV, radio, etc.--or books. ITV can complement teaching by stimulating and motivating learning, exposing the pupils to resources that are otherwise unavailable, reinforcing classroom experiences, saving the teacher valuable time by disseminating routine data rapidly, magnifying visual materials and demonstrations, increasing listening and observational skills, and promoting in-service education. ITV has its limitations, of course, but a teacher can overcome them with an imaginative approach that keeps his pupils constantly on their toes. (GO)
