Education and Cable TV: A Guide to Franchising and Utilization.
Designed to provide the educator with some answers about cable television (CATV), this monograph and resource catalog provides a basic description of CATV, its educational uses, and the franchising provisions which relate to its educational uses. The transition of CATV from an association with broadcast television toward cable information systems is a central theme of the document--its two-way capability, hands-on access, local origination, increased channel capacity, reduced costs, Federal Communications Commission rulings, and the implications of these technological advancements and policy changes for education and for society. Practical suggestions are made to the educator; information is provided about forces operating on cable's development; and recommendations are offered about franchising processes. In addition, alternative forms of ownership and extensions on "two-people-on-a-log" formatting are discussed. Appended are footnotes and a bibliography designed to help those who wish to readily examine any area in more detail. (Author/SH)
