Hawaii Educational Dissemination Diffusion System: An Action Report. Hawaii State Dissemination Conference, Hawaii Department of Education (Honolulu, Hawaii, October 1979).
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The first intensive exposure to organized dissemination at the state, regional, and national level for many of the participants, this 2-day conference consisted of a series of sessions held in Honolulu and neighboring islands. Explanations of how these dissemination efforts are organized and operated were followed by detailed information on the Hawaii Educational Dissemination Diffusion System (HEDDS) and the National Diffusion Network (NDN). Special packets distributed to participants contained descriptions of services offered by HEDDS, and HEDDS staff demonstrated their information retrieval services. Participants also had the opportunity to examine several of NDN's exemplary educational programs approved by the JDRP (Joint Dissemination Review Panel) and interact with the Developer/Demonstrators. The opening session in Honolulu was attended by 75 district and state level personnel, with 250 teachers, administrators, and district and state level personnel attending the exemplary program presentations in the afternoon. Similar sessions on Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii the following day were attended by 190 teachers, administrators, and district level personnel. This report includes the agenda, objectives, design, and evaluation of the conference. (RAA)
