An investigation into the use of South African Broadcasting Corporation School T.V. in enhancing teaching and learning in the foundation phase at Acacia Primary School.
Television is an extremely powerful and influential medium and if utilized appropriately it could promote literacy and revive a culture of teaching and learning in South Africa. The significance of educational television can only be realized if all role players are equally committed to this powerful medium: the National Broadcaster, the Department of National Education, school management team, parents, learners and perhaps the most important component, the educators in schools. School TV is an ideal vehicle to sustain and promote new teaching and learning strategies such as Outcomes Based Education. This research study concluded, that Educational Television is instrumental in supporting learners and educators in new teaching and learning strategies such as Outcomes Based Education. The research findings from this study provide valuable information on the preference and usage of SABC School TV in foundation phase classrooms.
