NORTHEAST REGIONAL INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION LIBRARY PROJECT.
BIGGY, VIRGINIA
A REGIONAL SCHOOL TELEVISION SERVICE WAS ESTABLISHED ON A PILOT BASIS FOR THE NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES FOR LOCATING AND ENCOURAGING THE PRODUCTION OF QUALITY INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAMING FOR USE IN SCHOOLS OF THE AREA. THE FIRST PROBLEM OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE EFFECTIVE EXCHANGE OF SCHOOL BROADCASTS, SOURCES OF QUALITY PROGRAMING, AND BETTER USE OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION. OTHER ACTIVITIES INCLUDED THE IDENTIFICATION OF CRITICAL CURRICULUM AREAS IN WHICH TELEVISION COULD PLAY A MAJOR PART, AND BRINGING TOGETHER TELEVISION EXPERTS AND PROFESSIONAL EDUCATORS TO DISCUSS (1) TECHNIQUES FOR BROADCASTING EXCHANGE, (2) THE ACCEPTANCE OF PROGRAMING IN THE VARIOUS EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITIES, AND (3) THE TYPES OF SUPPLEMENTARY TEACHING MATERIALS WHICH COULD MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL CONTRIBUTION TO SUBJECT-MATTER OFFERINGS OF SCHOOLS. DEMONSTRATION OF CENTRAL COORDINATION BEGAN WITH THE MANAGEMENT OF A SERIES SELECTED FOR REGIONAL EXCHANGE AND DISTRIBUTION. A SCHEDULE TO SUIT THE REQUIREMENTS OF EACH STATION IN THE REGION WAS WORKED OUT AND SENT TO EACH FOR APPROVAL. DURING THE FIRST TRIAL SEMESTER, THE MEMBER STATIONS EXCHANGED ALMOST 1,080 HOURS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAMING WHICH REACHED ABOUT FOUR MILLION ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL CHILDREN.
