Classroom Interaction, Satellite-Interposed.
Byers, Burton H.
The Pan-Pacific Educational and Communication Experiments by Satellite (PEACESAT) project for interconnecting classroom of colleges in the Pacific Basin was tried for the first time in June and July, 1971, between two campuses of the University of Hawaii. The experimenters found that while classroom interconnection by satellite produces some frustrations (e.g., noise levels), it has infinite possibilities. Students can produce measureable communication outcomes, cognitive, affective, and instrumental, and they enjoy the experience of communicating with students at distant sites. (Author/JK)
