Satellite and Cable: No Highway in the Sky for Conventional Teaching and Learning.
Wedemeyer, Charles A.
In examining the potential role of satellites and cable in classroom use, technological developments have been seen as extensions of schooling, rather than education in the broader sense. It is said that most education actually occurs in the school format, however, more progress in media development is predicted in non-school contexts, especially in adult and continuing education. Effective use of satellites and cable might additionally help to restore the balance in cultural offerings and to create areas of understanding across the "global village." The universities should take an active role in developing the educational function of media apart from the classroom. (SK)
