TV EQUIPMENT, SYSTEMS, FACILITIES, AND PERSONNEL--A GUIDE FOR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, A STUDY PREPARED FOR THE CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS INSTRUCTIONAL TV COMMITTEE.
WADE, WARREN L.
TELEVISED INSTRUCTION IS WIDESPREAD, YET THERE EXISTS LITTLE QUALIFIED, IMPARTIAL INFORMATION EXPRESSED IN NONTECHNICAL TERMS (AS IN THIS REPORT), CONCERNING EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL STANDARDS, REQUIREMENT, AND COSTS, FOR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS TO CONSULT. EVALUATION OF THE MEDIUM'S POTENTIAL MUST BE BASED ON INFORMATION CONCERNING TELEVISION'S CHARACTERISTICS AND ON ADMINISTRATIVE CONSIDERATIONS. AN INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION SYSTEM CONSISTS OF ORIGINATION, TRANSMISSION, AND RECEPTION-DISTRIBUTION SUBSYSTEMS. IT HAS THESE CHARACTERISTICS--IT CAN TRANSPORT IMPULSES, MULTIPLY THE POTENTIAL AUDIENCE, JUXTAPOSE NORMALLY SEPARATED OBJECTS, MAGNIFY SMALL OBJECTS, AND TRANSPOSE IMAGES IN DIFFERENT WAYS. FURTHERMORE, TELEVISION IS IMMEDIATE AND REPRODUCIBLE. GIVEN ALL THESE TECHNICAL POSSIBILITIES, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS MUST SPECIFY WHAT THEY EXPECT A PROPOSED TELEVISION SYSTEM TO DO, AND UNDER WHICH CONDITIONS. EACH PIECE OF EQUIPMENT MUST BE ANALYZED IN TERMS OF ITS FUNCTIONS. FINALLY, EVERY OTHER CONCEIVABLE ALTERNATIVE FOR PERFORMING THE TASK MUST BE EXAMINED TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PROPOSED SYSTEM IS THE BEST FOR THE GIVEN EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND BUDGET. (OH)
