The Tel-Ed '93 conference, "Global Connections," was intended to enable educators, administrators, researchers, and industry representatives to learn of the many new and innovative applications, important research studies, best practices, and national and international policy issues in educational telecommunications. The goal was to assist individuals concerned with the educational applications of telecommunications to use new resources and tools to improve the educational systems of their respective countries and, ultimately, to the benefit of humankind. The topics covered in this proceedings range from the theoretical to the practical, they focus on the primary to the adult learner, and they cross all disciplines. The following major themes are identified in the introduction to the proceedings: (1) New Partnerships; (2) Focus: The School; (3) Funding Sources; (4) Building Global Communities: Insights from Multi-National Projects; (5) Infrastructure in Action--State/District Initiatives; (6) Building Teacher Communities; (7) Perspectives on the Internet; (8) Software Tools and New Models for Interconnectivity; and (9) Telecommunications in Education: Current Practice and Trends.
