Impact and Implications of Technological Change on Educational Institutions.
Rizzi, Rose A.
Over the next 10 years, new video technology, including satellite transmission systems and narrow-casting technology, may create a "communication revolution" in America. Current applications of computers and telecommunications are already making it possible for educational institutions to include the home or the office as learning centers. New information technologies will raise the issues of how educational institutions should be restructured; how curricula should be changed and implemented; how teachers/faculty should be educated to keep pace with a rapidly changing, complex technological society; and what the roles of students and teaching personnel in the learning process should be. Institutions must prepare for high technology by having financial resources, expert personnel, equipment, instructional and faculty commitment, and short-range and long-range plans which are based on well-defined institutional needs, goals, objectives, and resources. This report includes a list of targeted questions on two topics: partnerships of educational institutions with business, and computer and telecommunications instruction. An extensive bibliography is provided. (LMM)
