An important part of using TV to teach centers around the use of the video tape recorder. A basic videotape recording unit consists o£ a videotape, a playback monitor, a television camera and a microphone.

Integral to any discussion of the VTR is an investigation. of the different aspects of using television tor educational purposes. The first step in this paper, therefore, will be a careful exploration of the advantages am. disadvantages of television and, indirectly, videotaping, in secondary education.

Without careful planning the VTR can bec0111e just another piece of mechanical equipment lost in the closet of a junior or senior high school. An inquiry into the variou.s uses for the videotape recorder is the paper's second objective. Through an investigation of the different uses of the VTR, the educator can best adapt TV to his/her instructional goals.
