Illinois State Board of Education, Springfield. Div. of Specialized Education Services.
A 5-year project to improve the dissemination of educational resources in Pennsylvania involved establishing a Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Dissemination Council to coordinate dissemination within the department, developing a comprehensive file of education resources, and strengthening educators' ability to acquire and use resources. This report tells of the program's chronological development, activities and results, approach to "equity," impact on practice, measurement of client satisfaction, institutionalization, significant learnings, and outside agency collaboration. Among the items included in the 12-part appendix are the Dissemination Council's policy statements and plans; the training module used to train school librarians to be their district's information specialist; an education resource file development report; a report on the establishment of the PDE Resource Center, which acts as a central point of access to educational information; an explanation of entries in the Pennsylvania Educational Resource File (PERF) and surveys used to gather information on educational programs and professional services available around the state to enter into PERF; a report on the instructional software fairs held for educators; an appealing pamphlet about instructional software; and Resource Center request forms, evaluation forms, and evaluation results.
