Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.; Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science and Technology.
The joint hearings which are documented in these proceedings were held to enhance the awareness of the Congress, the executive branch, and the private and public sectors of both the potential educational benefits of new information and telecommunications technologies, and the possible social and economic impacts resulting from the widespread use of these technologies in the educational process. A variety of perspectives on these two issues was presented during the two days of sessions. Among the witnesses who appeared before the subcommittees were representatives from the National Institute of Education, the World Institute for Computer Assisted Teaching, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Warner Cable Corporation, and the Educational Testing Service. In addition to these presentations, six workshops were held which focused on the implications of instructional technology for elementary secondary education, postsecondary education, public planning, special education, adult education, and information technology development. The recommendations presented to Congress by the workshop participants are included in this document. (LLS)
