Pacific Circle Consortium: A Regional Project of OECD/CERI. Report of Annual Conference (6th, Hiroshima, Japan, September 27-October 4, 1982).
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
Pacific region countries reported on their 1982 cooperative activities in education, including exchange and curriculum development projects, aimed at improving intercultural understanding. The first part of the report describes what happened at the sessions; the second part contains the appendices. Various countries--Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and the United States--reported on their recent activities. Papers discussing curriculum projects were presented. Discussed were the Antarctica and Southern Ocean Project, which developed K-12 classroom materials, a film on salmon developed by a group in Alaska, a unit of study developed on the "New Zealand Fisheries," and student activities for a "Bays and Harbours Unit--Honolulu." Discussion sessions were held on a number of topics, including curriculum renewal processes, Consortium activities, research on classroom learning, and the relationship between the Consortium and OECD/CERI. Field trips and school visitations were made by conference attendees. The meeting also included a business session. Included in the appendices are the agenda and lists of participants, papers presented, and Consortium activities. (RM)
