School TV Utilization Study.
Dirr, Peter J.; Pedone, Ronald J.
These are the preliminary findings of a report designed and implemented by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) to describe the status of instructional television. The following areas are covered: (1) attitudes toward ITV, (2) usefulness of ITV, (3) facilitation and hindrance, (4) availability of ITV, (5) delivery methods, (6) equipment availability, and (7) use of ITV. Questionnaires were sent to a stratified random sampling of all public school superintendents, principals, and teachers in all school districts with enrollments of 300 or more; the private sector was also represented. General implications suggest that some patterns are beginning to emerge. A major implication apparent even this early is that ITV is being used regularly by 15 million children, about one in three of school age. Detailed analyses of these data will continue in the spring of 1978. (VT)
