Program Formats, Vehicles, and Characters for Junior High School Audiences. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0509.
Connolly, A. J.; Lonsdale, Helen C.
The "Time Out" series designed by the Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) used a variety of formats, vehicles, and characters to explain career concepts to junior high school students. A science fiction set with a futuristic approach, called the Time Control Center (TCC) used vehicles to move forward and backward in time to access a computer for information on making career decision. The TCC crew members were characters who were career specialists. Characters were also used with the Matter Analogue Projector (MAP), a futuristic machine used to project a person's mental image on a screen. The STD demonstrated the possibility of developing formats and vehicles that would be acceptable to junior high school students; however it was concluded that more investigation should be done to improve television programing. Evaluation of the field testing is shown in statistical tables. (Author/DS)
