AbstractThe SCHOOL TV telecast and special education: potentialities as continued formation for teachers of elementary school. This research aimed to identify potential uses of the School TV in the continued formation of teachers that work with special needs students. Data gathering occurred in two phases: first, we used as instrument a questionnaire composed by thirty-four opened and closed questions. Afterwards, we made interviews and we used the Focal Group Technique during six meetings with our subjects. The data revealed that these teachers ignore the students telecast known as Special Education Set, as well as they ignore the concept of mental deficiency. But the data also indicate that it is feasible to use the students as means of continued formation as long as three aspects are considered: 1) the organizational aspects of school; 2) professional matters related to teachers' formation; and 3) policies of implantation of the School TV.
