AUTOMATION AND TECHNOLOGY IN EDUCATION.
Joint Economic Committee, Washington, DC.
RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN SUCH TECHNOLOGICAL AIDS AS EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, VIDEOTAPE, COMPUTERIZED INSTRUCTION, MICROFILMS, AND TALKING TYPEWRITERS, HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF EDUCATION, TO ALLEVIATE SOCIOECONOMIC ILLS, AND TO ELIMINATE ADULT ILLITERACY. HOWEVER, LONG-RANGE BENEFITS WILL DEPEND GREATLY ON BASIC AND APPLIED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH, SOUND CURRICULUMS AND ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURES, AND EFFECTIVE USE OF BOTH TEACHERS AND ADVANCED EQUIPMENT. THEREFORE, EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND MANUFACTURERS OF EDUCATIONAL "HARDWARE" AND "SOFTWARE" MUST WORK TOGETHER TO DEVELOP SYSTEMS OF TECHNOLOGY GEARED TO THE GENUINE NEEDS OF STUDENTS. THIS WAS A REPORT OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON ECONOMIC PROGRESS OF THE JOINT ECONOMIC COMMITTEE, TO THE 89TH CONGRESS, SECOND SESSION AND IS ALSO AVAILABLE, FOR 10 CENTS, FROM THE U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402.
