Toward a Model for Information Dissemination in Educational Technology Responsive to User Needs.
Anders, Wolfhart H.; Draxler, Alexandra
A study looked at the possibilities for a user-based information system which could provide usable structured information about educational technology and attempted to determine how best to supply information about educational process to users. The study had three phases. The first surveyed the literature and activities of centers concerned with the problem. This survey showed that the necessity for choosing a system for processing information almost always precedes the availability of information about input to and demands on the system. The result is difficulty in adapting to new functions. The authors set forth recommendations for useful information networks. The second phase, now taking place, is design of a questionnaire which will provide data on potential user needs and attitudes. The analysis of the data will help determine the shape of the third stage, development of an information center on educational technology in West Germany. The study is being carried out by the German Institute for Studies in Educational Technology at the University of Tubingen. (JK)
