Instructional Closed Circuit Television, Installation, Operation, Potential. Study Report Number 1 (Including Pictorial Report Number 1), 1957-1958.
San Jose State Coll., CA.
In the academic year 1957-1958, San Jose State College used closed-circuit instructional television for direct teaching and for teacher education courses involving observation of primary and secondary school classrooms in the area. Direct teaching by television was used for demonstrations in two engineering courses, for teaching presentations in Health and Hygiene Department courses, and for special presentations in several other courses. Television observation techniques were used in education courses which normally required school visitations by the students, and in courses such as Child Psychology and Child Growth and Development. The system consisted of a central station and 27 receiver stations, with cables to the schools to be observed. Tentative conclusions and recommendations indicate that with faculty familiarization and practice and with guidance of students by the instructors, television can be an effective supplement to college instruction. A photographic presentation of equipment is included. (BB)
