Dissemination and Utilization of Knowledge in the Area of Early Childhood Education: A Description of Some of the Problems.
O'Neil, Barbara B.
To be effective, information on early childhood education should (1) be directed towards the appropriate audience, (2) be written so that it is understandable to that audience, and (3) provide data to help the user make meaningful judgements. The wide range of educational and occupational levels of people working in the field of early childhood education necessitates different treatments of the same message. Moreover, there is a need for more feedback between the researcher and the practitioner to direct research to the salient problems and to make the results of research more useable. The ERIC Clearinghouse on Early Childhood Education (ERIC/ECE) is an information analysis center which serves as a synergistic information link between resources and the users of resources. The role of ERIC/ECE as a disseminator of new idea, new research, and new products is discussed in relation to the overall goal of providing better education for children. This paper is to appear as part of a chapter entitled "State-of-the-Art in Educational Diffusion" to be published by the Tuskegee Institute and the National Federation for the Improvement of Rural Education.
