To Improve Learning: An Evaluation of Instructional Technology. Volume I. Part One; A Report by the Commission on Instructional Technology. Part Two; Instructional Technology: Selected Working Papers on "The State of the Art."
Tickton, Sidney G., Ed.
Brief communications on learning and instructional technology from various persons in the fields of education, communications, and government are brought together in the report by the Commission on Instructional Technology. Following these contributions, the Committee makes six recommendations. Two of these are that two new institutions be established: the National Institutes of Education (NIE) and the National Institute of Instructional Technology (NIIT). The function of the NIIT would be to encourage the use of instructional technology and to help bring about an improvement in its quality. Appendices have contributions from educators, media representatives, and others gathered under headings concerned with technology's lack of impact on education, its cost and costing, and its use with the poor and the handicapped. Appendix F contains a history of the Commission on Instructional Technology. Part Two of this volume is composed of 22 selected working papers dealing with the state of the art in instructional television, computer-assisted instruction, simulation and games, films, programed instruction, radio, dial access information retrieval systems, adaptive machine aids, videotapes, and the interface of education and information science. A subject index is appended. (MF)
