Jo Daviess County Schools To Use Closed Circuit TV By GRANVILLE COOLEY Journal-Standard State Editor ELIZABETH — An audio-visual program, using closed circuit television tapes, begins in Jo Daviess County schools this fall under the auspices of County Educational Center here. The program has been made possible by the receipt of $9,500 worth of closed circuit television equipment by the center through federal funds. Use of television equipment in schools as a teaching aid, though never used in Jo Daviess, is not new on the educational scene. But the approach in Jo Daviess, where the equipment will be used in seven public and five parochial schools this fall, will be a step above normal educational television, according ;o those in charge of the program. Is Innovative Albert J. Tucker of Warren, who is director of the center, Raymond I. Thorn, superintendent of Elizabeth schools and president of the center's PACE [Project to Advance Creativity .n Education) committee, and Miss Hildegarde Staack, reading consultant at the center, said ;he equipment would be used ,n an innovative and creative way. The three indicated that the jest use of the equipment could be made by going, beyond receiving regular educational programs on video tape. "We want to make use of the OPEN DAILY A.M.

Included in the equipment are two cameras with zoom lenses, five tape recorders, several monitors, a special effects generator for fade-ins and superimposing plus tapes and cables. Grads Taped First use of the video taping by the center took place at Elizabeth's recent eighth grade promotion and high school commencement. The taoes were later played back through monitors at Tucker's Restaurant here so the public could see the results. August workshops will be conducted to determine some of the equipment's uses in the fall. The equipment will be stored at the center and will be available to the schools throughout the county. Staff members of the center will direct the actual taping of material. Faculty members of the school will be able to play back the material through monitors or through a regular television set which can be converted to a monitor with an adapter. Five Areas Served Each of the five areas served by the center, psychological, reading, speech correction, guidance counseling and social service, will be served by the new equipment. In the past most use of tele- vision equipment has been for general education purposes, but the center hopes to have the schools go beyond that concept to help the individual student as well as the individual classroom and the individual school. Tucker, Thorn and Miss Staack offered some of the following ways in which the equip- Elizabeth Extension Opens Friday ELIZABETH - The University of Illinois Cooperative Extension Service in Jo Daviess County will open its new offices on the second floor of the Elizabeth State Bank building Friday, according to Richard Cur- and Mrs. Ethel Schaber, Extension council chairmen.

The equipment is limited because of the number of classes which have to be served in the county. However, Tucker said he hoped that when the advantage of the system is realized by the individual schools they will be prompted to buy monitors to expand the use of the equipment.
