This study examined the process of television production as a cognitive tool. Specifically, the study focused on two major areas of investigation: what students learn about program content from planning, preparing, and producing television productions and the factors that influence such learning. The participants were students in a television production class offered by a large university in the northeastern United States of America. Qualitative, supplemented by quantitative methodologies were used to collect data. Data sources included program proposals and scripts, journal entries, class discussion, evaluations, interviews, and concept maps. The findings indicated that the process of producing a television program can act as a cognitive tool. Several factors were found to support learning: interest and motivation, collaboration, engrossment, and pride of authorship.
