Intended as a practical inventory of ways that public broadcasting has been used for education, this volume is divided into three sections that deal with television, radio, and research articles. The section on television discusses the method, material, and changing context of educational broadcasting; analyzes the programing and funding of preschool television; compares different approaches to programing for the school age child; and describes a number of approaches for teaching the adult learner. The section on radio presents a status report on education through radio including special programs for professionals, the young, and the blind; distinguishes the role of radio at various educational levels; and summarizes the needs of the radio industry if it is to expand. The final section contains research articles on satellite technology and public service telecommunication, open learning and postsecondary education, the effectiveness of "The Electric Company," and the role of instructional television in the educational community.
