The Use of Instructional Television in West Virginia Elementary Schools. 1977-78.
Willis, John A.
A survey of teachers in West Virginia county school systems which cooperate with a public television station in the scheduling and broadcasting of instructional television (ITV) addressed three questions: (1) What is the magnitude of ITV implementation and utilization? (2) How is ITV used by elementary teachers? (3) What problems are there in using ITV in elementary schools? Description and discussion of the population surveyed and the questionnaire used are followed by a report on the survey findings, including implementation and hardware issues; utilization levels in grades and classroom settings, classtime used for ITV, and programs watched; teachers' reasons for not using ITV and their suggestions for improving ITV use; and conclusions and implications of the findings for extending ITV use in West Virginia.
