Report to the Australian Broadcasting Control Board.
Australian Broadcasting Control Board, Melbourne.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a report to the Australian Broadcasting Control Board by the Advisory Committee on Educational Television Services. The report distinguishes between two kinds of ETV: instructional and general enrichment. Since general enrichment is already covered by current Australian television policy, the Committee's primary concern is with instructional television. Instructional TV is divided into three categories--total teaching, supplementary teaching, and related enrichment. Both national and commercial stations at present televise instructional programs, some specifically intended for schools. The Committee found these programs uncoordinated, reflecting the interests of those who produced them rather than the requirements of educational authorities. The Committee advised that instructional television should be developed as an integral part of the educational systems in Australia. In secondary schools, supplementary teaching is needed in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and foreign languages. In universities, all students could profit from related enrichment programs. Instructional programs must be skillfully planned and produced so that they genuinely serve the purposes of instruction.
