Instructional Television in Western Pennsylvania; Phase I.
Stone, C. Walter, Ed.
Phase One of the project involved the use of field interviews and questionnaires to gather information essential to long-range instructional planning. Conducted in behalf of Metropolitan Pittsburgh Educational Television (WQED and WQEX), the survey reached 382 educators in western Pennsylvania; 83 completed questionnaires supplied the data. Educational administrators were questioned about instructional media services, the role of the classroom teacher, the instructional value of television, and developmental plans. Items considered of major importance in planning were costs, class schedules, coordinating programs with regular classwork, and reception of the television signal. The project consultant recommends the establishment of an Educational Broadcasting Council for the Upper Ohio Valley region as a political headquarters, followed by an operational demonstration program (television production, teacher training, development of information resources, research), and finally, the development of a non-commercial communication complex for metropolitan areas.
