Summary

The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) saw the sixth Applied Technology Satellite (ATS-6) as a means of improving the quality of inservice teacher education by distributing high quality courses from a central source. There were 15 classroom sites scattered from New York to Alabama; the basic television reception equipment cost approximately $4,000 per site. Five of the 15 sites were also equipped to receive and transmit 2-way radio via ATS-3. There were 4 major learning activities: (1) 30-minute, pretaped televised programs which included lectures, interviews, and demonstration teaching; (2) audio reviews of the pretaped television programs; (3) live seminars which allowed students to ask questions of their teachers and other experts; and (4) resource libraries at each site. There is a one-page summary of each of the following: evaluation strategies; how well did the equipment work; how well did the system for relaying seminar questions work; what were the participants like; how well did the participants like the different learning activities; how much did the participants learn; did the participants become convinced of the values of course concepts and procedures; are the teachers using the skills learned; and conclusions.
