Cable Television and Education: Proceedings of the CATV and Education Conference, May 11-12, 1973.
Cardellino, Earl L., Comp.; Forsythe, Charles G., Comp.
Edited versions of the conference presentations are compiled. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together media specialists and other educators from throughout Pennsylvania to evaluate the basic assumptions underlying the educational use of cable television (CATV) and to share ideas about the ways in which cable could be used to change the educational system in response to current needs. The first four papers deal, respectively with analyses of the interface between CATV and education from the national, community, cable operator's and Federal Communications Commission points of view. Other presentations focus upon federal regulations and CATV, the role of the educator in working with cable operators and the franchise process, and school and community communications via cable. A description of an individual district's cable operation concludes the report. (LB)
