Tomorrow's Tools Today: The State of Educational Computing in Asia and the Pacific. A Report of the Regional Seminar (June 13-27, 1990).
National Inst. for Educational Research, Tokyo (Japan).
This report contains the results of a regional seminar on computers in education organized by the National Institute for Educational Research (NIER) of Japan. In an effort to promote international cooperation and the sharing of information, 15 participants from 12 countries (Australia, Brunei Darussalam, People's Republic of China, India, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Thailand) reviewed the state of computers in education in their countries; examined the results of studies on computers in education, including one initiated and coordinated by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA); and identified general issues, problems, and concerns that are common to all. It is noted that areas identified fall within the categories of policy, hardware, software/courseware, teacher development, and general. A discussion of the problems, issues, and suggested strategies for solving problems is followed by suggested recommendations. Also included are a list of participants and their addresses, and individual reports outlining the uses of computers in education in each country. (DB)
