Principles and Approaches to the Use of Video-Computer Technologies in the Planning and Management of Education.
The planning and management of educational systems has been examined widely in the last decades despite the lack of a standard research method and a unified underlying theory. Research based on quantitative analysis yields data that may be processed using the graphic capabilities of computers. The combination of numerical data and computer graphics results in a visual, realistic presentation of scientific results. New computer software must be developed that will facilitate information analysis and visual presentation. Interactive video is an example of a video-computer technology that provides quick access to visual information, computer organization and control over database information, and use of that information. Qualitative information may be represented quantitatively by using a functional statistical model made up of factor and graph models. The information is then in a form that is easily assimilated by educational administrators, teachers, as well as other scientists. (DB)
