The ITV Experience at Evanston Township High School. Research Report No. 52
Dignam, Monica; Stocking, S. Holly
Having used instructional television (ITV) since 1955, the Evanston Township High School has been generally dissatisfied with its experiences with closed circuit television (CCTV), dial access ITV, and portable ITV for teachers' in-class use. It appears that future ITV use at Evanston will be minimal, due to wide resistance from students, faculty, and administrators. CCTV was useful for simultaneous large group communication, but prevented individual teacher control. Dial access ITV, while permitting students to work at their own pace, depended too heavily on student motivation, and did not permit teachers to monitor use. Although the portable video equipment requires some mechanical ability to operate, its mobility, relatively low expense, and potential as a tool for in-class evaluation and feedback make it the most likely form of future use of ITV at Evanston.
