Technology in Science Education: The Next Ten Years: Perspectives and Recommendations.
Licklider, J. C. R.; And Others
The four papers in this collection were commissioned by the Science Education Directorate of the National Science Foundation to assist in planning a research agenda for science education for the next ten years. A background paper by Dr. J.C.R. Licklider, "Impact of Information Technology on Education in Science and Technology," discusses the potential future impacts of technology on society, and therefore, on science education. Dr. John Seely Brown, in his paper "Fundamental Research in Technology in Science Education," discusses research trends in cognitive psychology and instructional systems, noting a shift from an emphasis on effective methods for the acquisition of facts and skills to an emphasis on the use of computers for the development of intelligent, knowledge-based instructional systems. Dr. Arthur Luehrmann's paper, "Technology in Science Education," considers the needs of schools and universities in light of the advances in educational technology. Dr. Joseph I. Lipson discusses the overall R & D effort in his paper, "Technology Program Recommendations," about the use of technology to improve science education, and summarizing the task force recommendations for a federal program for research and development in this area.
