A Source Book for Connections: Technology and Change.
Resource materials and suggestions are presented as part of the multimedia instructional program on relationships among science, technology, and society. The major objective of the program is to make college level course material available to the general public through cooperation of newspapers, public television, and 300 participating colleges and universities. The book is presented in four major sections. Section I presents an overview of the program, outlines major topics which can be used at weekly or monthly meetings on technology and change, explains how various community and educational groups use the program (newspaper articles, a reader/study guide, and a 10-part television series), and presents tips to teachers on how to plan and arrange publicity for a program based on technology and change topics. Section II offers suggestions for programs based on a variety of topics including technology assessment, impacts of technology on society, increasing productivity, links between nature and technology, societal values, population and resources, and economic incentives for innovation. For each topic, information is presented on background, reading assignments, discussion questions, and learning activities. Section III lists and describes activities and publications of private and governmental agencies, organizations, and museums which focus on technology and change. The final section presents a filmography of approximately 160 films on technology and change. Entries are annotated and arranged alphabetically under major course topics. (DB)
