An Investigation of Teacher Attitudes Toward Closed Circuit Television in the Fremont Union High School District, Sunnyvale, California.
Kirkorian, Donald G.
The purpose of the study described here was to 1) investigate teacher attitude toward the present state of closed circuit instructional television as revealed through a questionnaire administered in the Fremont Union High School District; and 2) to make recommendations that would encourage greater utilization of this medium. Responses to the 23-item questionnaire were obtained from 79 percent of the 150 teachers sampled. Highly favorable statements were: 1) a function of TV in the classroom is the improvement of instruction; 2) there are some courses being taught that would be more effective if some units were supplemented by TV; 3) TV teaching guides explaining content, suggested uses, etc., should be available on all video taped programs and telelessons. Highly unfavorable statements were: 1) TV utilization limits and reduces the curriculum; 2) we should have one TV studio at the district rather than one at each school; 3) TV in our school impairs the normal teacher-student relationship. Most other statements fell into an "uncertain" category. Significant differences between sexes, ages, schools, and teaching experiences were observed for some statements. On the basis of the results, 11 specific recommendations were made. (CH)
