Television: A Viable Channel for Educating Adults in Culturally Different Poverty Groups?--A Literature Review.
Niemi, John A.; Anderson, Darrell V.
Recent research on the effectiveness of educational television (ETV) with adults in culturally different poverty groups suggests, first of all, that ETV for these groups must be combined with techniques (like listening groups) using volunteer teachers, and that such planning requires close cooperation between adult educators and media specialists. Moreover, a selective retrospective survey (1956-71) of 11 literacy programs, one in English as a second language, one community development project, and four on personal and social development, has revealed few suitable provisions for evaluating either the appropriateness of the ETV programs or the achievements of individuals. (The document includes program descriptions and 27 references, as well as tabular data on program content, sponsorship, publicity, scheduling and program length, teaching techniques, evaluation techniques, staffing, and instructional materials.)
