The Application of Technology to Education.
A symposium was sponsored by the American Society for Engineering Education; experts in the fields of technology, economics, and pedagogy gathered to evaluate the potential technological advances in terms of cost-effectiveness and feasibility within the existing educational framework, and to help delineate the ways in which educational institutions could apply specific technological advances within the coming ten years. The papers presented are grouped under the headings: The Roles of Computers in Education, Systems Analysis in Education, and Managing Change. Although their main emphasis is on engineering curriculum and university level education, many of the papers have a broader topic, relating to some of the problems of computer-assisted education in general. The members of the symposium agreed on the need for better communications and better information dissemination among themselves. They also proposed investigating the impact which research and development investment could have on subsequent expenditures for education, setting up a major systems analysis to allow for more efficient use of extant funds, and preparing an inventory of experts in the field. They agreed to prepare experts' reports for use by Congressional committees or other governmental agencies. (JY)
