Improving Productivity of School Systems Through Educational Technology. Final Report of Symposium.
Scanlon, Robert G.; Weinberger, JoAnn
Full texts of ten commissioned papers are presented, along with discussants' remarks and an analytical review by the editors. The symposium was held to explore the potentials and implications of using advanced communications and technological systems to improve educational productivity. Major foci included: 1) the use of management models to increase educational productivity; 2) the adequacy of planning cost models for predicting the resource requirements of technological alternatives; 3) the problem of relating input strategies to output measurements; 4) the utility of case histories for illustrating the effectiveness of technology-based instructional systems; and 5) the examination of the human, political and social factors involved with the development of technological systems in education.
