Instructional Technology; A Statement of Policy and Proposed Action.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of the Regents.; New York State Education Dept., Albany.
A position paper examines the importance of educational technology in today's educational system and makes recommendations to the New York state government in the form of a policy statement and proposed action. The prime concerns are individualized instruction, cost effectiveness, use at all levels, equity for disadvantaged students, and occupational education. While recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of educational technology, the report recommends increased use of technology in the instructional process, a study of requirements for training of professionals in the field, and new strategies for improving the quality, and quantity and cost of instructional technology materials. In order to carry out the recommendations, the New York State Education Department is taking steps in planning and implementation, regional systems, funding, cooperative development, evaluation, and research and development. The report calls for existing resources of educational film libraries, libraries of video tape materials, networks of educational television, and a proposed plan for a computerized educational information system to be drawn together in a comprehensive effort in educational technology.
