Prospects for Educational Telecomputing: Selected Readings.
Tinker, Robert F., Ed.; Kapisovsky, Peggy M., Ed.
The purpose of this collection of readings was to stimulate debate on the role of educational telecomputing in school reform and restructuring, and how efforts from the public and private sector can coordinate to bring about these changes. The 14 papers are entitled: (1) "Linking for Learning: Computer-and-Communications Network Support for Nationwide Innovation in Education" (Beverly Hunter); (2) "Networking for K-12 Education: Bringing Everyone Together" (John Clement); (3) "A Developer's Perspective on Telecomputing" (Candace L. Julyan); (4) "A Publisher's Perspective on Telecomputing" (Monica Bradsher); (5) "The Network Science Experience: Learning from Three Major Projects" (Cecilia Lenk); (6) "Building Electronic Communities: Success and Failure in Computer Networking" (Margaret M. Riel and James A. Levin); (7) "Electronic Communities of Learners: Fact or Fiction" (Sylvia Weir); (8) "Alice: Telecommunications for Education" (Patricia Parker); (9) "Considerations Underlying the Architecture of a State Public School Telecomputing Network" (Glen L. Bull, Cameron M. Harris, and Harold Cothern); (10) "TENET: Texas Education Network" (Connie Stout); (11) "Networking the Future: We Need a National 'Superhighway' for Computer Information" (Al Gore); (12) "IGC (Institute for Global Communications) Networks and Education" (Bill Leland); (13) "International Telecomputing" (John Foster); (14) "Introducing Telecomputing to Soviet Schools" (Boris Berenfeld).
