Cable Television in the Classroom. ERIC Digest.
Holmes, Glen A.; Branch, Robert C.
Using cable television in the classroom allows teachers to include the latest news and current events in class discussions. However, many educational practitioners are uninformed about the concept and lack the knowledge to implement the technology in the classroom. This digest describes how cable television can be integrated into elementary and secondary classroom instruction. Topics covered include systems that link schools with cable television; current cable network school collaborations; and examples of cable television applications in schools. (Contains 18 references.) (JLB)
