Television: A Vehicle for Community-Based Environmental Learning.
LeBaron, John F.
The advent of low cost, easy to use half-inch videotape systems, and the burgeoning of cable television operations throughout the continent have given teachers and children two very powerful tools which allow the students to explore the community and also give the community fresh insights into the lives of children from the point of view of the children themselves. Teachers can help their students explore the community environment by using basic sources of information, like the local newspaper, town community center, television station, radio. The information which these sources provide can be gathered, organized, and reported through the use of a video Portapak, a small television studio, or both by task forces of children. Cable television is generally an easily accessible, convenient vehicle for broadcast of completed videotapes. A list of the equipment that the task forces of children will need for their program is included. (Author/SH)
