Educational Implications of Technological Change. Technology and the American Economy, Appendix, Volume IV.
National Commission on Technology, Automation and Economic Progress, Washington, DC.
Three studies dealing with the educational implications of technological change are presented. "The Application of Computer Technology to the Improvement of Instruction and Learning" by Don D. Bushnell, Richard deMille, and Judith Purl is based on 35 research and development programs involving computer technology. Their general thesis is that current educational use of computers is for administrative and logistical control purposes but the future potential of such applications will be in instructional activities. "The Emerging Technology of Education" by James D. Finn reviews related literature, identifies trends, and discusses implications of technology for education. Gabriel D. Olfiesh makes "A Proposal for a National Research and Development Program in Educational Technology for American Education." A series of eight papers by the staff of the College of Education, University of Iowa, presents an analysis of numerous implications which technological change has for education. Other appendixes to VT 003 962 are VT 003 960, VT 003 961, and VT 005 794-VT 005 796. (EM)
