Closed Circuit Television Model Program.
Elms, Glen D.
The resources of closed circuit television can improve teaching and learning in schools. Three junior high schools in Arlington Heights, Illinois have inaugurated a closed circuit television model program. The program's objectives are improvement of the quality of standard teacher-lesson presentations, redirection of teacher time and energy to individual student help, expansion of students' educational experiences, improvement of teacher competency, implementation of new curricular offerings, encouragement of the team approach to planning, releasing of teachers from classroom responsibilities to prepare and record video tapes, provision of a means for teachers to compare their teaching performance with previous performance and with other teachers' performance (thus bringing about a more favorable attitude toward self-assessment), and more efficient use of student time. Extensive summer workshops have trained participants to prepare video tapes to be used in the coming school year and to further explore and develop new techniques to be used in closed circuit television. Other program activities are dissemination of information, an inclusive demonstration program for visitors, consulting services, and extensive self-evaluation. (MM)
