Futurism and School Media Development; Proceedings of a Higher Education Institute (August 10-17, 1974).
Miller, Marilyn L., Ed.; Geppert, Alida L., Ed.
The Institute on Futurism and School Media Development, held at Western Michigan University, August 1974, presented 20 papers to 104 state leaders in educational media. The principal focus of the convention was the 1975 national guidelines for school media programs, "Media Programs: District and School," and several papers addressed themselves to an explanation and description of that document. There was an analysis of the Illinois library network system, the problems of networking, and its application to school media development. The principles of accountability in education were explored, and the failure of the new guidelines to provide for a means of ascertaining learning growth was examined. Other topics covered included the need for long range planning, establishment of future goals, the necessity for a restructuring of the library science curriculum, the expanding role of the media specialist, and techniques available for evaluation of media centers.
