EMERGING PATTERNS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION FOR CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
HELMKE, GUY M.
THIS BULLETIN OFFERS GUIDELINES FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL TV AND SUMMARIZES THE HISTORY AND PRESENT STATUS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TV IN CALIFORNIA. AMONG POINTS MENTIONED ARE THE FOLLOWING--THERE IS NEED FOR FURTHER LEGISLATION, PERSONNEL, FACILITIES, AND EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA TO REALIZE THE BEST USES OF TELEVISION. IN 1966 OVER ONE MILLION STUDENTS RECEIVED PROGRAMS BROADCAST BY EDUCATIONAL TV STATIONS, AND OVER 85,000 RECEIVED CLOSED CIRCUIT TV INSTRUCTION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN CALIFORNIA. PROGRESS HAS BEEN SWIFT IN AREAS OF CONCENTRATED POPULATION. REGIONAL ADVISORY COUNCILS HAVE SUPPLIED BROADCAST PROGRAMS TO SCHOOLS AND ADMINISTERED COOPERATIVE FUNDING. IT IS FOUND THAT THE CALIBER OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION IS IMPROVED BY TV. TEACHER SHORTAGES CAN BE OVERCOME AND CURRICULA ENLARGED. EDUCATIONAL TV STATIONS IN CALIFORNIA ARE OWNED BY COMMUNITIES OF CITIZENS, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND COUNTIES. INTER- AND INTRASCHOOL CLOSED CIRCUIT TV SYSTEMS ARE OPERATIVE. THE CAPITAL OUTLAY FOR INSTRUCTIONAL TV EQUIPMENT IS SMALL IN COMPARISON WITH THE CONTINUING COSTS OF OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE. (MS)
