Transformations in Society and Education.
McBeath, Ron J.
Breaking with past conceptions of change as a pendulum swing based upon dichotomies, this paper offers a model which depicts change as sequential, emergent, and transformational. Patterns of change identified in the fields of technology and science are also identified in the field of education, and a three stage paradigm depicting transformational change in education is outlined under the headings of principles, practices, and outcomes. The staged progression described moves from teaching aids, to audiovisual techniques, to instructional technology. A bibliography is included. (FM)
