Basic Statistics on Instructional Television and Other Technologies; Public Schools, Spring 1970.
National Center for Educational Statistics (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
The material in this bulletin provides a nationally representative sample of base line data on the availability of television (TV) and other technologies in the classroom. Information is presented for all public schools, by elementary and secondary levels, on four matters: 1) the percentage of schools possessing TV receivers, videotape recorders (VTR), or both; 2) the number of schools which have TV receivers, VTR, closed circuit instructional television fixed services and radios; 3) The percentage of schools with TV receivers which utilize educational technology; and 4) the number of TV receivers per classroom. Statistics indicate that 75% of all schools have TV, 26% have VTR, 22% have both, and 21% have neither VTR nor TV. Other significant findings include the facts that 82% of all pupils are in schools with TV, that only 13% of the schools--mostly located in rural areas--have none of the four above mentioned forms of instructional technology, that more than 70% of the schools with TV use educational television, and that the median number of TV sets per school is two, meaning that simultaneous use of TV by different classes within a school is highly limited.
