Making the Most of Satellites and Interactive Video. Technology in Language Learning Series.
Hill, Brian; And Others
Possible applications of satellite television and interactive video in language teaching are described. Advice is given on how to set up, expand, and effectively exploit these technologies in the classroom. A variety of activities are suggested for developing listening, speaking, and writing skills at different levels. The guide concludes with a look at the future and some suggested guidelines to help teachers in purchasing new educational technologies and developing their use. Chapters include the following: (1) setting the scene (e.g., reasons for interest, problems in the use of authentic television, getting started or expanding); (2) exploiting authentic television in the classroom (e.g., news, advertisements, documentaries); (3) a user's view of authentic television in schools (e.g., research findings, implications of satellite television, recording and cataloging programs; (4) an eye to the future (e.g., receive and transmit, audio conferencing); and (5) "Interactive Video," by Michael Picciotto (e.g., benefits, the Nebraska Scale, commercial programs). A glossary is included. (LB)
