Telecommunications: Toward National Policies for Education. The Report of the National Conference on Telecommunications Policy in Education, The Georgia Center for Continuing Education, Athens, Georgia, December 4-6, 1968.
Meaney, John W., Ed.; Carpenter, C. Ray, Ed.
Papers from a conference on telecommunications are presented in this report, as well as the discussion and recommendations of the five conference commissions. The papers are concerned with education and telecommunications, the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, information systems for the future, cable television, satellite systems, the President's Task Force on Communications Policy, and systems applications. The work and reports of the conference commissions centered around the relationships of telecommunication with universities, schools, preschool education, continuing education, and urban education. The recommendations of the conference commissions were that: the Joint Council on Educational Telecommunications (JCET) should insure the recognition of education's stake in the new technologies, that JCET should emphasize the importance of the opportunity that now exists to bring two-way cable communications into the American home, that JCET should help with strategy to use communications media in attacking social problems, that JCET should join with other agencies to bring about cooperative production of instructional materials, and that JCET should urge the United States Office of Education to expand its programs for training faculty and technicians in the use of telecommunications.
