Extending Education Through Technology. Selected Writings by James D. Finn On Instructional Technology.
McBeath, Ronald J., Ed.
A selection of James Finn's writings is collected here for students of media and instructional technology and for decision makers who are concerned about education. A general perspective for examining the educational setting and a philosophy of education which makes us aware of the importance of vigorously examing our ideas, practices, and institutions introduce the book. Next, more specific attention is paid to the relationship between automation and education--the realities of living in a technological age and implications for education. Eleven papers attempting to change the movement into a profession, written over a period of 15 years comprise a section on the development of educational technology from audiovisual to instructional technology. A final section provides a re-examination of instructional technology and the problems of institutionalization; an assessment of some of the social, economic and political changes; and a reminder of the importance of keeping man in the center of educational endeavors.
