School Building Design and Audio-Visual Resources.
National Committee for Audio-Visual Aids in Education, London (England).
The design of new schools should facilitate the use of audiovisual resources by ensuring that the materials used in the construction of the buildings provide adequate sound insulation and acoustical and viewing conditions in all learning spaces. The facilities to be considered are: electrical services; electronic services; light control and ventilation; and sound insulation, acoustic properties and treatment of spaces. General learning areas will vary in design specifications according to the number of students they are to serve: individual learners, small groups of less than 12 students, large groups, and very large groups of more than 40. Additional requirements must be considered for special areas: music, art, drama, business and vocational classrooms; science and language laboratories; and the library and media production center. In the appendix of this booklet, diagrams and floorplans are used to chart reception and antenna patterns for various broadcast equipment. (Author/SL)
