Education in a Technological Society: "Access to Tools."
DeVore, Paul W.
This address deals with the phenomenon of modern technology in the context of: (1) its potential to alter society, (2) its implications as a discipline base for education, (3) specific curriculum developments necessary with technology as a conceptual frame of reference, (4) its behavioral characteristics in an "environmental continuum" and an "activity continuum" for an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, (5) a taxonomy for transportation technology, illustrated by means of 11 diagrams, (6) nine steps for program development utilizing a specific discipline in a taxonometric approach, and (7) a future-oriented approach to education as an institution for meeting human needs. This final step for our society will require education to: (1) incorporate the study of the"Behavior of Technological and Social Systems" and (2) provide access to tools which will maximize the ability to pursue the educational system's goals. A bibliography and a diagram of a program development matrix are included. (AG)
