Read chapter 2 in Cuban.
Write in your blogs:
1. Cuban reports an interesting pattern in teacher use. Regardless of the technology involved (radio, film, tv), teacher adoption and use remains remarkably consistent. Why do you think that might be?
2. Media comparison studies done between televised and non-televised lessons showed no significant difference in outcomes as measured by achievement tests. With what you know about this kind of research, is this a useful finding? Why/why not?
(With all i’ve said about it so far, i’ll be interested to hear what you have to say on question two).
