Abstract

A sampling of teachers from two school districts was interviewed to determine the amount of use and factors affecting utilization of ITV programs in the classroom.

The findings revealed a high percentage of teachers using ITV programs in their classes.Physical surroundings had the greatest influence on TV usage. Unavailability of TV sets and poor reception of t he TV signal hamper teachers usage of ITV.

The teachers who used ITV incorporated the elements of pre-program preparation of the student: or what they we r e about to view and followup materials after the program.

Most of the teachers felt that ITV was moderately effective as a teaching tool.
