Design for ETV: Planning for Schools with Television. Revised.
Chapman, Dave; Carioti, Frank
The primary focus of the study reflected in this report was the facility for the educational program -- spaces and equipment for learning in the school. Particular emphasis was placed on the effective use of television in the classroom. The study results reflect seven years' review by a design team of experience with educational and instructional television as developed by teachers and administrators from "scratch" and of the requirements and use of television in school situations across the nation. The report offers verbal and visual comments, recommendations and suggestions as guides for those involved in school planning and school space design. The report opens with a summary of findings relative to the immediately recognizable elements that effect the educational program. Subsequent chapters offer planning guidelines; a description of the organization, transmission, and reception equipment; and a discussion of some of the individual elements of furnishings and furniture for the various spaces within the school. In a final section, solutions to all previously discussed problems are presented in sketch form and put together for a total school space concept. Listings of representative references used in the report compilation and a glossary of ETV terms conclude the presentation. (Author)
