Cable Television; What's in It for Teachers? A Handbook for State and Local Education Associations.
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Div. of Instruction and Professional Development.
This handbook lists the reasons why educators at the local level should become involved in the development of education television programs for cable television. Developed by the National Education Association (NEA), it encourages use of the cable channels set aside for education by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) before the channels are re-allocated for other uses. A brief discussion of what cable television is and how it can benefit education is followed by reasons why schools should use it and how cable TV can serve teachers, students, parents, and the community. Suggestions for workshops for teachers, how to get started in television programing, and how to get programs on the cable are presented. Ideas for funding sources are also given. (HB)
