Television and Youth: Proceedings of the National Workshop (Washington, D.C., March 12-13, 1980).
Corder-Bolz, Charles, Ed.
The workshop documented in these proceedings had four purposes: (1) to develop dialogue within and between the several sectors of society whose interests and expertise are focused upon the role of television in the lives of children and youth; (2) to increase awareness of the need for making the television viewing experience of children and youth positive, beneficial, and educational; (3) to encourage and assist the development of programmatic efforts within organizations; and (4) to identify and develop the foundations for collaborative efforts among organizations. Each workshop participant was a member of a special interest group and a member of a task force. Each of the four special interest groups (educators, youth leaders, parent leaders, and TV industry) developed recommendations which could be taken back to the representatives' organizations and shared with similar organizations. Each of the four task forces, with equal representation of parent leaders, educators, youth leaders, and industry professionals, developed recommendations for collaborative efforts at the national and local levels.
