Study of Education Satellite Communications Demonstration: Alaska. Second Bi-Monthly Report.
Practical Concepts, Inc., Washington, DC.
A second bimonthly report describes progress made on six tasks enumerated in earlier reports and specifically points out three new issues raised by the demonstration: the question of the use of telecommunication for other than educational purposes, the discrepancy between the project's concept and reality, and the usefulness of a project for native villages to urban adults. Also documented are historical events of the two-month period, steps taken to measure village involvement and television use, methods chosen to select four native villages for intensive study of the demonstration's impact, and a procedure for measuring the postdemonstration effects. The schedule for the next two months is listed. Appendixes include documentation methodology, the documentation filing system and an operator's training guide. (SK)
