Research and Development Center in Educational Stimulation. Quarterly Progress Report.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Research and Development Center in Educational Stimulation.
Activities in this quarter centered around the opening of an experimental school in Clayton County, the incorporation of some National Advisory Panel recommendations (as outlined in EA 002 781), the preparation for a USOE site team visit (EA 002 811), and the preparation of the Program Plan and Budget Request. The center's position is based on the conviction that early educational stimulation is a key to the solution of educational and social problems, and that there is a need for complete educational models rather than fragmented research and development projects. The focus of the center's programs is on the experimental Clayton County Early Elementary School, which enrolls 431 students, ages 3 to 8 years. The educational model is the result of knowledge-base development in the center. Once established, the model goes through a series of regenerations as a result of continuing evaluation and feedback. Development depends largely on a systems approach backed by computer technology, with the advantage that a complete model is always available for dissemination. Present program projects call for a second model, involving a disadvantaged population, with work to begin in fiscal year 1971. (DE)
