Changing Channels. Nontraditional Careers for Women.
Linn Technical Coll., MO.
This viewer guide describes Changing Channels, which uses satellite teleconferences to provide distance learning for students and educators throughout Missouri and the United States. This series of live interactive programs features successful women in high tech nontraditional jobs. The series is composed of five kits, each with two tapes and an activity guide, on the following subjects; introduction to high tech careers, laser technology, drafting and computers, electronics and robotics, and aviation and electronics. Introductory material describes the two most recent programs: "Live from Hollywood--Designing Your High Tech Future," about the television and film industry; and "Live from NASA," about a female astronaut. The activity guide contains exercises and activities on five subjects: career choices, examining women's roles in society, "what's your title?" understanding the language, and defining nontraditional terms.
