Man, Science, Technology: An Educational Program.
Ziel, Henry R.
This proposed secondary educational program, detailed in eight chapters well illustrated with photographs and working diagrams, is intended to enable people to understand science and technology in order to make more intelligent decisions regarding their use, rather than allowing them to dominate man. Written by a professor of education, this comprehensive program for all ranges of learners utilizes the product matrix, the systems approach, the critical incident evaluation of the student's performance, and PERT application to program evaluation. The educational processes under consideration include: (1) authority, (2) decision making, (3) communications, and (4) organization, intended to reinforce academic disciplines, provide a synthesizing educational environment, interpret productive society, and provide exploratory activities in career development. Laboratory methods focus on the technologies involved in the occupational clusters relating to machines, materials, tools, and processes. A detailed program rationale and a bibliography are provided.
