Educational Telecommunication: Does It Work? (An Attitude Study).
Coussement, Sylvere H.
This study was planned to develop and evaluate an assessment component to measure student attitudes on science as influenced by subject matter presented via telecommunication. Use of technology to introduce varying, exciting, and effective education is becoming commonplace, and assessment of student attitudes is essential to evaluating, updating, and refining curriculum. This research examined the "Integrated Science" teaching process, involving known teaching techniques integrated with a video lesson. A questionnaire was developed, analyzed, tested, revised, and then given to 299 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students in 14 Integrated Science classes at 3 schools which received the video lessons via telecast from a major southern U.S. university. The questionnaires established a means for evaluating the Integrated Science program as determined by attitude toward science monitoring. Variables affecting the study might include positive or negative feelings toward a teacher, subject matter, classroom environment, or classroom activities. The study results are being used to revise the Integrated Science curriculum. (Contains 23 references.) (BEW)
