Gaudray, Francine, Comp.
The demands made by modern technological society on the traditional educational system are briefly discussed. The remainder of the compendium describes 11 projects which are using educational technology, principally televised instruction, with success. Projects from Brazil, Canada, West Germany, France, England, Japan, Poland, and the United States are presented. Most projects broadcast conventional arts and science programs at the elementary, high school, or college levels. Brazil televised a course for illiterates, and France sponsored programs about agriculture for farmers and the other rural dwellers. Each report includes the aims of the project, description of programming, statistics about participation, and conclusions about the success of the programs. (JK)
