KQED ITV: Case Studies of Exemplary Instructional Television Use.
Chen, Milton; And Others
Instructional television (ITV) is an effective medium for improving teaching and learning at all levels of education. Thirteen brief case studies provide teacher's insights into how ITV can be integrated with newer computer and satellite technologies to provide instructional opportunities in numerous academic subjects for all students. The voices of the teachers describe how ITV has been used effectively in the past and offer advice for the future. ITV is viewed as an educational tool with pedagogical advantages intrinsic to the medium: (1) for visualizing the abstract concepts important to many subjects; (2) for conveying art, science, literature, and history as human experience; and (3) for providing role models that would otherwise remain distant in their students' lives. ITV facilitates learning for slower as well as more advanced students, and has the ability to maintain students' interest in learning more. (DB)
