Satellites, Telecommunications and Education: A Resource Guide for Australian Educators.
White, Peter B., Ed.
This 206-item annotated bibliography focuses on projects which place the use of new communications technologies within an educational planning framework and which acknowledge the need for communications satellites to be considered as part of a total telecommunications system. Though citations included relate primarily to the uses of telecommunications or communications satellites, some material on the educational use of broadcasting is also listed. Most of the documents and journal articles cited were originally located through a May 1982 search of the following major educational databases: Resources in Education and the Current Index to Journals in Education (from 1969), Australia Education Index (from 1957), and British Education Index (from 1972). Topics and projects addressed in the articles include the Appalachian Education Satellite Project, distance education, Home Loan Video, Dial Access, project evaluation, videotex, teleconferencing, audio tutorials, and new technologies. Key words are listed with each abstract. An appendix briefly describes eight projects funded by the Commonwealth/State Advisory Committee on the Educational Use of Communications Technology (ACEUCT).
