Summary

Major developments in the history of education and television centered around broadcasting in the 1950's, then closed circuit applications, the growth of video recording, and more recently the use of satellites. During its 25 year history, educational television in the U.S. has seen the growth of a television college in Chicago, a video university (the University of Mid-America) in Nebraska and the mid-west, the Children's Television Workshop programs for pre-school education (Sesame Street) and for reading improvement (The Electric Company). The results of a major survey of instructional television uses throughout the United States by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting indicate that television is firmly established in the formal education system of the country. Television's effectiveness for many applications in the educational system in the United States has assured it a firm place in instructional programming at the elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. TV applications currently include several county wide systems, and a brief description of the Broward County, Florida, and Washington County, Maryland, systems concludes the presentation. (JEG)
