Open Education: Some Tasks for Technology.
Resnick, Lauren B.
Educational Technology, v12 n1 p70-76 Dec 1972
While the open education movements and educational technology are often seen as mutually hostile, the challenge in education for the future is to find ways to develop the full range of each individual's capacities and of doing so while putting control of the learning process as much as possible in the learner's hands: for educational technology, the challenge is to apply technological discipline to the problem of developing such learner-controlled educational systems. The implications of learner control for six different aspects of educational systems are discussed in this paper--the choice and definition of educational objectives, the organization and sequencing of objectives, the problem of displaying educational alternatives to the learner, the provision of learner control within a given instructional episode, learner control of motivation, and evaluation of competence.
