The Schools and the Challenge of Innovation.
James, H. Thomas; And Others
Papers contributed by authors prominent in educational innovation and technology are in this collected work. The authors do not always agree, but a broad pattern of agreement is discernible. They agree on the identification of those major problems confronting the schools today as a result of the new social forces at work; and generally, they agree in assessing the significance of the new innovative developments in education, though they do not necessarily agree on their desirability. The introduction by Sterling M. McMurrin on innovation and the purposes of education, is followed by four chapters, each representing a broad classification. They are: (1) improved use of school resources, (2) more effective evaluation and research, (3) the challenge of innovation to teachers, and (4) the possibilities and costs of instructional systems. Contributors are: H. Thomas James, J. Alan Thomas, Charles S. Benson, Ralph W. Tyler, John I. Goodlad, Roald F. Campbell, Philip W. Jackson, Robert Glasser, William H. Allen, Wilbur Schramm, Lawrence M. Stolurow, Clyde N. Carter, and Maurice J. Walker. (GO)
