The Role of New Technologies in Schools: Collected Papers. Research Into Practice Project.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
The Center for the Study of Evaluation of the Graduate School of Education at the University of California at Los Angeles hosted a two-day conference on "Paths to Excellence: Testing and Technology" on July 14-15, 1983. Attended by over 100 educational researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, day one of the conference focused on issues in educational testing; day two explored the status and future of technology in schools. This document presents the collected papers from the second day of the conference. Presenters representing a broad range of disciplines and local, state, and national policy perspective were asked to consider issues in technology in the schools and the policy implications of present and future applications. Presenters were given broad topic areas: for example, human cognition, instructional design, test design, software evaluation, and social policy. Their charge was to explore their topic areas in light of new technologies with regard to the following: (1) What is the current state of the art? (2) What are potential future directions? (3) What barriers may impede future directions? and (4) What are the implications for educational research, policy, and practice? (PN)
