Learning and Teaching Tomorrow.
The pressures of an expanding population and an increasingly complex technology will increase the demand for education in the next ten or fifteen years. On examining the figures available for expense per pupil for teachers and for instructional materials, it seems as if the education industry is overstaffed and underequipped. In the future there will be changes in the organization of schools, and in the patterns of learning and teaching. A combination of large group instruction with small group discussion and experimentation would seem to be the pattern of the future. If the instructional materials industry can produce more varied and effective software, some of the presently idle equipment may be used, especially in the individualization of instruction. Teachers will have to examine and rethink how they are providing educative experiences for children. They will have to be ready to consider new approaches and new media; and they will have to be trained to use them. The role of the National Council for Educational Technology will be in teacher training; identification, classification, and assessment of instructional materials; and coordination of instructional material development.
