Implementing Interactive Television. Integrating Technology Series.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
This guide for implementing interactive television in elementary and secondary schools begins by arguing that the introduction of interactive television requires school districts to cooperatively solve the challenges of multidistrict consortia and to develop policies and procedures to help implement the new delivery system. It is also noted that the teaching and learning process will require some adjustments because of the unique aspects of a technology which relies heavily on extremely sophisticated and complicated technical equipment. The guide then provides rationales and suggestions on six topics: (1) the policies and procedures; (2) inservice workshops for teachers and administrative staff; (3) instructional management strategies; (4) techniques for teaching on an interactive system; (5) classroom equipment requirements; and (6) classroom design. A diagram of an interactive television classroom is included. (GL)
