Planning to Meet Alaska Educational Needs Through Telecommunications. Final Report.
Alaska Governor's Office of Telecommunications, Juneau.
This report chronicles key steps in the process of the development of a growing operational telecommunications system, ultimately capable of reaching even the smallest and most remote villages in Alaska, and discusses its applications and implications for improved educational support delivery statewide. There is particular emphasis on the experiments and planning funded in part or in full by the National Institute of Education since 1973. Part II is designed to serve as background documentation on Alaska's history of educational telecommunications development. Part III reports the tasks accomplished by the Governor's Office of Telecommunications and the Alaska Department of Education. The 4-year planning document prepared to establish an operational educational telecommunications system is detailed in Part IV. Appendices include the task force survey questionnaire with a summary of responses, the planning and research survey questionnaire with a task force, a resources/characteristics matrix, a summary of implementation possibilities, a simplified glossary of common telecommunications terms, and a bibliography.
