Changes in Educational Ambience: Short Term and Long Term.
Present trends in the use of leisure time for both education and recreation point to interesting developments in the future. In education, more and more adults are going back to college, and this will bring changes in both the curriculum offered at the college level and the mixture of students. In recreation, people are using local recreation areas more and driving less. Much leisure time is now spent in the home, which places the television in a crucial position with regard to both recreation and education. The result may be that the home will become the entertainment, the education, and the recreation center, and our attention will shift from milieu, place, to ambience, the feelings attendant upon being in a given place.
