The Peace Corps Volunteer and Achieving Educational Change with New Media.
A broad overview of a two-year Peace Corps project designed to implement educational television (ETV) in Colombia is presented in this report. The project is briefly described in an opening section, including discussions of the Peace Corps' goals, Colombia's conditions and need for ETV, the Volunteers, organization of the project, telecasting, the Colombian teacher, the schools, and the research. Research findings showed recurrent issues: the role of the Peace Corps Volunteer, the challenge of employing the electronic means of a technologically advanced society in a developing country, the Volunteer's effectiveness in achieving educational change, and the transfer of responsibility and authority to Colombia.
