Educational Technology in New York State: Theory, Practice, and the Future.
Kurland, Norman D.
In the first section of this paper, the theory behind the use of educational technology in New York State is discussed: that the major contribution of technology to education should be to help achieve individualized instruction and help students become self-motivating, self-directing independent learners. Current activities in the use of educational technology, such as the state of educational television and a Technology Demonstration Program, are described (with additional information in this area appended) in a second section. Finally, the conclusions reached at a New York State Education Department Conference on instructional uses of the computer are presented, the major conclusion being that a large and carefully coordinated development effort must be undertaken if the potential of the technology is to be realized.
