Establishing Distance Education Networks in New Zealand: Practicalities Past, Present, and Future.
The New Zealand cluster of schools model using audiographics began in 1993. Canterbury Area Schools began to plan a cooperative project in that year to try to meet the various needs of their rural and urban communities. This paper describes the CASA(Tech) [Canterbury Area Schools Using Audiographics] Project in terms of administrative issues affecting schools at that time; teaching and learning issues; and why audiographics were started. Administrative issues included: difficulties in establishing the network; organizational issues; costs invoked in developing and maintaining technology; staff training; and technical support. Teaching and learning issues highlight: the impact on the professional development of teachers; course development in the network; inter-institutional cooperation; measurement of educational objectives and outcomes; evaluation planning; and benefits of using audiographics. Present and future developments in the project are also described. (AEF)
