Sharon, Donna; And Others
Through a series of case studies, this report examines the varied connections between selected Ontario schools and the TVOntario programs and services designed to support teaching and learning. The case studies profile nine school districts: Waterville, Countryside, Edgewater, Cliffside, Pleasantville, Rocky, Satellite City, Centretown, and Riverside. The research focuses on four aspects of the school environment: (1) areas of change and the change process; (2) television and video use; (3) microcomputer use; and (4) relationship with TVOntario. For each aspect, the report synthesizes the case studies, providing background information, a summary of findings, and a discussion of the findings in relation to TVOntario. Five recommendations for TVOntario follow the main section of the report together with summaries of the individual case studies. A final short section outlines the comments of the Ministry of Education officials on the issues. A summary of the study is provided in both English and French, and a glossary of 11 acronyms is included. (12 references) (SD)
