A Reappraisal of Instructional Television. An Information Analysis Product.
Cambre, Marjorie A.
This reappraisal of the situation of instructional television (ITV) in education begins by defining the field, providing background information, describing the various roles that ITV can fill, and discussing the structure of ITV as a profession. Various aspects of ITV use are then discussed in the context of: (1) national use statistics on ITV accessibility, ITV use, barriers to use, and training teachers in its use; (2) data on budget support, personnel, administrative encouragement of ITV use, and changes in ITV accessibility; and (3) qualitative data on equipment, programming, and support systems for ITV. An examination of research and evaluation which considers three types of inquiry--basic research, formative evaluation, and impact studies--is followed by a discussion of ITV issues and futures in the areas of research and development, design, production, distribution, promotion, use, and measurement and evaluation. The report concludes with a discussion of factors critical to the present and future of ITV. Eight figures and three tables are included. (54 references) (MES)
