REGIONAL CENTER FOR COLLECTION, SYNTHESIS AND DISSEMINATION OF CAREER INFORMATION FOR SCHOOLS OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY.
GERSTEIN, MARTIN; HOOVER, RICHARD
THE PURPOSE OF THIS REGIONAL CENTER IS TO DEVELOP AN EFFICIENT SYSTEM OF PROVIDING CAREER INFORMATION TO SAN DIEGO COUNTY SCHOOLS. SIX JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE PILOT PROJECT. THE PROGRAM IS DIVIDED INTO TWO PHASES. THE FIRST IS THE COLLECTION AND SYNTHESIS OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION BASED UPON STUDENT AND COUNSELOR PERCEPTIONS OF WHICH OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION IS MOST VALUABLE, THE PREPARATION OF DATA ABOUT 55 OCCUPATIONS IN HOSPITAL CAREERS, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WORKABLE, EFFICIENT, ECONOMICAL SYSTEM OF DISSEMINATION AND RETRIEVAL, AND THE PREPARATION OF AUXILIARY MATERIALS. THE SECOND IS THE EVALUATION OF THE EFFICACY OF THE "VIEWSCRIPT" MATERIAL IN ORDER TO REFINE THE CONTENT OF THE CARD MATERIAL, AND TO TEST THE EASE OF USE AND ACCEPTANCE BY STUDENTS AND FACULTY. A DESCRIPTION OF THE EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, INSTRUCTIONS FOR THEIR USAGE, AND EVALUATION IN THE SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING IN THE PILOT PROJECT IS INCLUDED. THE FUTURE ACTIVITIES OF THE CENTER WILL INCLUDE EXPANDING THE "VIEWSCRIPT" APPROACH TO MANY OCCUPATIONS, FOLLOWING-UP OF GRADUATES OF LOCAL SECONDARY SCHOOL TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND SELECTING OF SECONDARY SCHOOLS TO RECEIVE THE "VIEWSCRIPT" MATERIALS. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (SESSION 266, NEW YORK, APRIL 6, 1966). (PS)
