Educational Telecommunications for Alaska.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Office of Planning and Research.
This telecommunications program planned and initiated by the Alaska Department of Education is designed to (1) provide basic communication capability to the state's 52 school district headquarters, (2) examine and report the results of making research and instructional information collections which exist outside Alaska available to educational practitioners in the state, (3) implement and evaluate the use of a semi-automated system of student diagnosis and academic recordkeeping, and (4) design and use practical rural secondary school curriculum and instruction, utilizing modern telecommunications to mediate instruction in small, isolated schools in rural Alaska. The project makes use of a phased design, field test, evaluation, as an implementation protocol for staging the four major thrusts of its programs. Recognized and appropriate methods of client participation are employed in the design of program strategies and their implementation and evaluation, as well as their adoption. (Author/JEG)
