Winkler, Stanley, Ed.
High level officials from government, industry and the educational community met to consider the importance of technology in training and education. The symposium created a forum for the discussion of issues relating to the current state of the art of learning technology, the expanding range of applications of educational technology, the future prospects of technology in education, cost-effective technological developments, and policy and technical implications involved in the future growth of technology. Specific topics considered at the general sessions included: 1) responsibility for applying technology to training; 2) the government's role in training technology in the health professions; 3) computers and satellites for training and education; 4) international applications of educational technology; 5) business and government issues in the use of technology in training and education; 6) advanced instructional technology. Six technical presentation seminars focused upon maintenance training, skills training, educational technology in schools and colleges, software development, cost-effectiveness criteria and career education.
