Daley, Richard, Ed.
The Agency for Instructional Technology recently conducted its first national contest to search out the best promotion and utilization ideas that instructional agencies use to increase use of instructional video materials; this compilation of the best ideas submitted for the competition is intended to serve as a reference for instructional technologists. The activities described are listed under four major categories: (1) Workshops, which includes two projects for teacher training on educational television (ETV); (2) Curriculum Integration, which includes a teacher inservice program to improve writing instruction; a project designed to use the "ThinkAbout" series effectively; activities in the areas of science for the second and third grades, social studies for the fifth grade, and reading/vocabulary development for the fourth grade; a resource catalog of instructional television (ITV) series; and the integration of ITV resources into state guidelines; (3) Promotion, which includes a "School Television Planning Book" designed for use by teachers; design of an ITV handbook to resemble TV Guide; an ITV newsletter from a broadcasting station; a student testimonial promoting the use of ITV from a history class; use of posters in curriculum areas to help teachers become aware of ITV; a reading contest intended to motivate children to read books in a TV series; "Reading Rainbow," a selected educational series designed to help reduce summer learning loss; teacher utilization awards; a series produced for high school students about aging; the "Family Life Education Brochure"; the Interconnect monthly newsletter; and ITV promo spots; and (4) Production, which includes an ITV teleconference/workshop; a broadcast of sample ITV programs; inservice programs on microcomputers and reading motivation; using ITV to implement state minimum standards for elementary/secondary schools; and the development of indexing and cross-reference materials for curriculums for vocational and handicapped students.
