Making Television Educational. A Resource Booklet on Utilizing Television in Classrooms.
Penman, Brian; And Others
This resource book examines the relations between the teacher, the student, and television; provides concrete teaching models which demonstrate breadth and depth in learning through television; indicates that curriculum planning and design which ignores television does so at the expense of a wealth of learning that is best provided through the medium of television; and orients teachers to the innumerable resources of the Ontario Educational Communications Authority (OECA). The key concept is utilization, meaning that television as a medium must be adapted, informed, and shaped by teachers to a useful purpose, namely learning by the young. There are practical suggestions not only for teachers, but also for administrators, audiovisual consultants, and co-ordinators to assist them in planning educational utilization of television. Media violence, sex stereotyping, and cable television are discussed briefly, and a layman's guide to judging television programs for children is provided. (VT)
