NFE-TV: Television for Nonformal Education.
Gunter, Jonathan Forrest
This study develops guidelines for the use of television in nonformal education in developing countries. Its recommendations are based on analysis of three cases of television usage: in the formal educational system in El Salvador, community development in village Alaska, and in nonformal education for parenthood in Bogota, Colombia. A selective review of the literature on nonformal education is followed by discussion of three basic but conflicting approaches for the selection of goals, objectives, and methods. A list of dimensions is developed along which educational television varies, including project context and approach, software, and hardware. The three case studies presented represent a progression in time and in philosophical digression from the traditional concept of educational television. A list of tentative guidelines is submitted as a model for the consideration of designers of subsequent television projects for nonformal education. (Author/CMV)
