Education and the New Technology; Symposium Convened by the Canadian Council for Research in Education (Ottawa, Ontario, November 22-24, 1967).
Canadian Council for Research in Education, Ottawa (Ontario).
In 1967, the Canadian Council for Research in Education sponsored a symposium on educational media and technology which included educational researchers, communication experts, government officials, and representatives of companies concerned with the development of instructional materials. Goals of the symposium were increased communication among the groups represented, identification of the parameters of educational technology, and identification of pertinent research problems to be investigated. The meeting included discussion groups, panels, and the presentation of some 16 papers. While all areas of technology in education were covered, the greatest emphasis was placed on computers and computer-assisted instruction. The report of the symposium includes resumes of the papers, which cover many dimensions of educational technology: communication theory and application, use and development of new instructional materials, administration of educational facilities, current practices in Canadian schools, and the involvement of educational research, industry, and government. Transcripts of the panel discussions are also included and cover technology and individual differences, the problem of quality in education, future applications of educational media, practical considerations in media use, and the roles of research and development in shaping the new technology.
