Acquiring Skills Essential to Learning. Preliminary Report.
Biggy, Virginia M.
A proposal for the creation of a series of instructional television programs has been developed by the Agency for Instructional Television. The programs will focus upon essential skills in the areas of communications, computation, inquiry, and analysis and evaluation and will be organized at three levels for children of kindergarten age through eight years, eight through ten, and ten through 12. Instruction will emphasize increasingly difficult uses of these skills and stress their continuous practical application in realistic situations. Each program will be brief and based upon sound educational principles relating to instructional design, pre- and post-assessment, evaluation, reinforcement, feedback, and application. Specialists drawn from among teachers, educational researchers, psychologists and television professionals will comprise the production team and insure that the programs are faithful to these basic instructional precepts.
