Document Type

Abstract

The high hope that is being placed in television as an educational medium makes it desirable that we examine the training needed to fit teachers to this medium. Many questions can be asked such as, can only certain persons teach successfully by TV? How long does it take to train a TV teacher? Is a very special kind of training necessary? What are the peculiarities of TV a teacher must recognize? In the past several years, considerable information has accumulated on how to teach by television. Most of this information is empirical but some has resulted from situations involving a fair degree of control and statistical evaluation. Colleges utilizing commercial ·outlets and WOI-TV operating the first educationally owned station have been exploring the possibility of education by TV. The Special Devices Center, Port Washington, L. I., New York has conducted pioneer projects of great value for the purpose of adapting TV to military training.
