Educational Implications of In-Home Electronic Technology. Research Memorandum--33.
Walling, Victor C., Jr.; And Others
This study identifies and assesses the potential impact of new electronic technologies on education in private homes, and looks beyond immediate incremental changes to broader, more subtle, complex, or threatening changes that may require attention from federal policymakers. Some educational implications are discussed: (1) equality of access to high quality education, including opportunity for the disadvantaged and handicapped; (2) the organization of education in society, including local school finance, private schools, alternative education, and national education resources; and (3) the Federal role, with sections discussing monitoring and research, planning and policy making, and support for capacity building. The appendices provide discussions of the in-home educational needs of poor and low motivated students and the handicapped, trends in developing and marketing new technology with in-home educational potential, and current federal activities related to in-home educational technology.
