EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION--EXTRACT FROM HEARINGS BEFORE A SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, 87TH CONGRESS.
CORRIGAN, ROBERT E.
STATEMENTS ARE PRESENTED ON HOW QUALITY EDUCATION CAN BE PROVIDED FOR THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT WITHIN AN EVER-EXPANDING MASS EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. THE ABILITY TO PROVIDE THE BEST EDUCATION GREATLY DEPENDS ON THE MEANS OR METHODS EMPLOYED, THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE, AND THE EFFICIENT UTILIZATION OF BOTH. NEW METHODS AND TECHNIQUES CAN MORE EFFICIENTLY OPTIMIZE THE SKILLS OF AVAILABLE QUALIFIED PERSONNEL. THE MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION IS GAINING ACCEPTANCE AS A PRIMARY MEANS FOR RESOLVING THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF A GROWING POPULATION. ADVANTAGES OF TELEVISION ARE THE ABILITY TO PROJECT THE IMAGE AND SPEECH OF ONE OR MORE INDIVIDUALS INTO MANY SEPARATE LOCATIONS AT ONE TIME, AND THE ABILITY TO USE MANY SOURCES OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS TO PROVIDE RICHER AND MORE COMPREHENSIVE INSTRUCTIONAL AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES. OBJECTIONS TO TELEVISION INSTRUCTION ARE THAT IT IS A ONE-WAY COMMUNICATION SYSTEM, THAT STUDENTS DO NOT PARTICIPATE ACTIVELY OR DIRECTLY IN THE LEARNING SITUATION, THAT TEACHERS CANNOT INTERACT WITH EACH STUDENT, AND THAT INSTRUCTORS CANNOT MONITOR OR CONTROL THE ONGOING LEARNING OR TEACHING PROCESS. THE SOLUTION MAY BE IN AUTO-INSTRUCTION. THE TERM DOES NOT REFER TO DEVICES BUT TO A METHOD OF TEACHING AND/OR LEARNING WHICH OPTIMIZES THE ABILITY OF AN INSTRUCTOR TO MORE EFFICIENTLY CARRY ON THE TEACHING PROCESS. A CONCISE DESCRIPTION OF PRINCIPLES OF THE TELETEST SYSTEM AND EQUIPMENT NEED ARE INCLUDED.
