GALVESTON PHONOSCOPE EXPERIMENT.
Galveston Public Schools, TX.
THE PHONOSCOPE IS A COMBINED SMALL TELEVISION CAMERA AND 21-INCH TELEVISION RECEIVER BUILT INTO ONE PORTABLE INSTRUMENT. THE TWO-WAY AUDIO AND VIDEO COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM MAKES POSSIBLE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS LOCATED AT DIFFERENT SCHOOLS, AND BETWEEN CLASSES IN DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. CLASSES IN DIFFERENT SCHOOLS MAY HAVE DEBATES, AND DISCUSSIONS OR THE CLASSES MAY JOIN TOGETHER TO SHARE LEARNING EXPERIENCES, INTERVIEW RESOURCE PERSONS, AND COMPARE WORK PROJECTS. THE PHONOSCOPE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS CAN ALSO BE USED TO PROVIDE INSERVICE EDUCATION FOR TEACHERS AND TO BRING LEARNING EXPERIENCES TO THE CLASSROOM FOR THE BENEFIT OF AN INDIVIDUAL STUDENT OR FOR THE WHOLE CLASS. PHONOSCOPE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS CAN SOLVE SUCH PROBLEMS OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION AS THE HIGH COST OF INSTALLATION AND OPERATION OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION FACILITIES, THE NEED TO HAVE TRAINED TECHNICAL PERSONNEL ASSIST IN THE EDUCATIONAL APPLICATIONS OF TELEVISION, THE LIMITATIONS OF ONE-WAY COMMUNICATION IN PACING A PRESENTATION, AND THE RIGIDITY IN SCHEDULING THE USE OF TELEVISION FACILITIES.
