La Television educative dans les ecoles de langue francaise de l'Ontario: Enquette aupres des enseignants et des enseignantes, 1989-1990. Document de travail 90-9 (Educational Television in French-Language Schools in Ontario: Teacher Survey, 1989-1990. Working Paper 90-9).
This report presents the results of a survey of both elementary and secondary level teachers in French-language schools in Ontario which was conducted to determine the usage of educational television in these schools. The 630 responses to the questionnaire yielded information on: (1) educational television usage, both live broadcast and videotaped recordings; (2) the availability of electronic equipment such as television sets and videotape recorders; (3) regional use of live television; (4) access to videocassettes produced or distributed by La Chaine; (5) sources of videocassettes other than those of La Chaine; (6) the primary function of educational television; (7) the relevancy of La Chaine broadcasts; (8) teacher planning processes; (9) teacher training needs; and (10) computer usage. It was concluded that educational television in general--and La Chaine in particular--are used widely and with great success because of the quality of the programs and the efficiency of the medium as an instructional tool in schools. Appendices include a copy of the questionnaire sent to teachers; a discussion of decisions made based on responses to the questionnaires; breakdowns of responses by gender, region, and elementary/secondary level; and a list of television series used at the elementary level together with the percentage of respondents who used the particular series. A summary of the findings in English is included. (DB)
