Educational Technology and Development of Education.
Dieuzeide, Henri
The activities of International Education Year enable us to assess the recent spectacular expansion of world education, and the results are scarcely encouraging. There is a growing rift in the industrial nations between educational systems and societies, which is breaking down the school's monopoly as a source of knowledge. If the developing countries continue trying to build educational systems on historic Western models they may be headed for economic disaster and social bankruptcy. Part of the solution lies in more efficient use of educational research and technology; not the hasty adoption of technology to patch up shaky educational systems, but full and integrated use of all the resources of technology for helping each individual acquire and use knowledge. And instead of continuing to let the technology do only what the teacher cannot do, we should ask ourselves what the teacher should do that the machine cannot. The educational model we should move toward is one that offers a community service of self-instruction for safeguarding individual freedom of action. (MG)
