Educational Philosophy and Educational Technology.
Educational technology presents a challenge to educators. It makes possible the instruction of an individual in any course the educator deems necessary. In order to utilize these new opportunities effectively, the educators must decide what the goals are for a person in an automated society. The educator must deal less with the teaching of information and shift to teaching ideas, methods of inquiry, independent learning, personal development, and social living. He must contend with the special problems of poor children, the need for excellence, and the demand for individualized instruction. Educational technology has the potential to participate in the dissemination of these educational values and to solve these educational problems. To accomplish this there must be more effective and better coordinated application of scientific technological methods. There must be research on educational values; there must be application of this research in the design of instructional programs and in the education of educators. It will also be necessary to provide information about the technological revolution in education to the general public. (JY)
