Television Utilization.
Dobosh, O.; Wright, E. N.
The utilization of educational television (ETV) in schools can be ascertained by considering the teacher training in ETV, the extent of access to ETV, the student reaction, and the programing. Using a questionnaire survey method combined with detailed ETV logs, this study was able to analyze both ETV and film utilization in 13 elementary and secondary schools in the Toronto area. The data analysis revealed very great differences among teachers in their use of both film and television. This finding proved that simply providing access to ETV did not necessarily mean utilization would follow. The teachers' previous habits towards ETV were the deciding factor on the utilization, be it black-and-white or color. The research also showed that though a large number of color sets were available a sizeable proportion of teachers and students did not feel color television added that much to the programing. In conclusion the study suggested that an equitable distribution of television sets is not the best way to increase utilization. (MC)
