How Teachers and Administrators Can Be Given a Better Indoctrination on the Potentialities and Uses of Instructional Technology.
VanderMeer, A. W.
The strategy for giving educators a more solid and sophisticated indoctrination in the uses and possibilities of technology in education must aim at the reduction of the extreme points of view of the pertisans and opponents of technology. A. W. VanderMeer sees the prospective teacher as a professional with a thorough grasp, not only of every aspect of educational technology, but also of humanistic studies, behavioral sciences, and of the wide range of content to be taught within the discipline of the teacher's competence. The prospective teacher, in his training, should be creatively and self-consciously involved in a system of education which will establish in him those professional techniques and ways of study and operation that typify the manner in which applied social scientists apply their professions.
