Closed-Circuit Television--A Tool for Guidance.
Wilmington Public Schools, DE.
Educational television (ETV) has been explored fairly widely as a tool in supplementary or large scale curriculum presentation, but relatively little work has been done using it as a guidance tool. This paper presents Delaware's Alfred I. duPont School District's program using the district and state closed-circuit television network. The major contribution television can make to the counselor's efforts is to instruct and monitor the large-group testing and information giving functions. This frees the counselor for more individual and personal contacts. This district has found it very successful in pre-college, high school, and junior high orientation programs. Intercom systems allow two-way communication. Several scripts are described briefly, and an evaluation study discussed. High-school vocational guidance use of the Delaware ETV series "It's about Work" is presented in some detail. (BP)
