Congressional Perspectives on Information Technology.
Brown, George E., Jr.
In his introductory address to the 1981 National Conference on Technology and Education, Congressman George E. Brown, Jr., discusses recent congressional activity in the area of information technology. According to Brown, the testimony presented at recent congressional hearings made it clear that technological change was occurring rapidly and that the government should consider developing an information policy and supporting information research. It appears particularly important to restructure educational priorities in an effort to prepare today's students for life in a world incredibly different from that we know today. Such an effort requires not only instructing students in the uses of developing technology, but also in using the new technology to enhance the instructional process itself. (PGD)
