Television in Education.
MacLean, Roderick
A survey of the use of television in education in Britain presents the medium not as a revolutionary approach to instruction, but rather as a new facility through which the teacher can better achieve traditional educational aims. The medium is analyzed according to its ability to magnify, distribute vision instantaneously, store visual material, and to assemble large amounts of heterogeneous material. The present utilizations of television--from over-the-air broadcast to the general public or to specific interested groups, to closed-circuit, specific task use in single schools or universities--are described, and the implications for its future development in education discussed. Current techniques and equipment are described along with the growing, and differentiating, roles of educator and television professional. The author assesses the value of broadcast services and explains the nature of the quite different and specialized fields of closed circuit and intra-institutional television. (BB)
