Interactive Classroom Television Systems: Educational Impact on Partially Sighted Students.
Bikson, T. K.; And Others
The report presents the results of an evaluation of the educational impact in two Los Angeles County, California, elementary schools, of Interactive Classroom Television Systems (ICTSs -- closed circuit systems that permit continuous two-way visual communication between teachers and partially sighted students and enable such students to make the fullest possible use of their residual vision). The two ICTS sites and their participants are described, along with the project's evaluation design, the kinds of assessments employed, and the data collection schedule. In general, assessment of project outcomes over two years suggested that ICTS have a strong positive impact on the educational experiences of partially sighted elementary school students in the three areas evaluated: academic achievement, visually dependent skills (visual motor integration and visual sequential memory) and psychosocial mediators of school success (attitudes toward academic evaluation, toward peers, and toward self).
