Automation in the Schools: A Presentation on the Automation Study Project Given to the Material Handling Institute, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Todd, Ronald D.
A cooperative Automation Study Project is proposed between The Institute for the Study of Technology in Education (TIE) and the Material Handling Institute (MHI). The project would develop instructional materials to support study about automation, integrate a support equipment system with the materials, and utilize a portion of the resources of industry and the talents of interested individuals in the development of instructional materials reflective of contemporary technology. There are four aspects of the project under consideration: (1) the curriculum program, (2) the organization of TIE, (3) the missions of TIE, and (4) the outputs of the project. Technology is defined here as the integrator and director of knowledge as applied to solving practical problems. On the ninth grade level, the six parts of technology are materials, processes, machines, energy, information, and man. On the next level, the student studies in the areas of communications, construction, manufacturing, or service. At Grade 12 level, work will be concentrated in research and development and job staging. (Author/GEB)
