The Magic Lantern: Metaphor for Humanistic Education.
Joyce, Bruce R.
This paper relates contemporary information about communications and media technology to the task of reconstructing educational institutions. This paper treats three broad areas: a) learning centers which will satisfy individual needs, b) fundamental principles supporting the centers, and c) the implementation of the learning centers. The first portion explains five learning centers which are labelled according to purpose: idiosyncratic, social ecology, performing arts, academic, or skills. The principles supporting the need for learning centers include the following: 1) New models of learning are required to provide strategies for collective action and personal developments. 2) New ways of educaton must be developed to support the new possibilities of communications technology. 3) The present educational system was constructed for a status-oriented, slowly changing society. 4) There is a need to increase commonalty and diversity simultaneously. 5) The present classroom setting and teacher role are obsolete. Finally, the principles of this new educational theory and the means to implement these concepts are discussed in relation to achieving the final goal of reconstructed educational institutions. (MJM)
