Human Sciences Research Council, Pretoria (South Africa).
This report describes the findings of a work committee on learning needs and media utilization, which conducted an investigation of: (1) the learning needs that exist at the macrolevel in South Africa in informal, formal, and nonformal education; (2) those needs that can be satisfied by the use of educational radio (ER) and educational television (ETV); (3) the use of ER and ETV in selected foreign countries; and (4) the structures for control of ER and ETV in selected countries. Following a description of the priority learning needs in southern Africa, the use of ER and ETV is described for Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Israel, India, Asia, Pakistan, Russia, Poland, and a number of African countries. Additional chapters discuss some important considerations in the introduction of an effective educational broadcasting service and an analysis of the current situation with regard to radio, television, and educational media in South Africa. The appendix includes a summary of the limitations and potential of ER and ETV. (LMM)
