Recent Developments in Instructional Technology in the Developing World.
Tickton, Sidney G.
Brief descriptions of the use of television as an integral part of educational reform in El Salvador, Niger, and American Samoa are presented, along with plans for a new project in the Ivory Coast. In these case studies, television is primarily a catalyst for reforms that would not otherwise be likely to occur. These reforms include curriculum revision, new teaching methods, new subject content for educational programs, retraining of teachers, production of new teaching materials, and, in addition, an organized attempt at feedback and evaluation. Looking ahead, it is noted that communications satellites will be the next vital medium of educational reform. This brochure is a short preview of a larger handbook on this subject which is currently in preparation. (JK)
