Teacher Training in the Use of Educational Technology. Proceedings of a Conference (Washington, D.C., February 9-10, 1978).
The purposes of this conference were threefold: (1) to bring together a group of experts and representatives of selected Federal agencies to review the adequacy of training for teachers, professors, and administrators in the use of educational technology; (2) to seek recommendations from these experts as to the appropriate Federal and non-Federal roles in improving teacher training in the use of educational technology; and (3) to disseminate a report on the conference proceedings and recommendations to Federal and non-Federal groups concerned with the problems. During the first day of the conference, 12 persons nationally recognized in their fields presented a brief overview of particular issues related to teacher training in the use of educational technology. On the second day, the invited experts served as a panel which addressed the issue areas and, together with the conference participants, suggested recommendations for consideration by Federal agencies, state and local agencies, educational institutions, teacher organizations, students and parents, and producers and distributors of hardware and software. Included among the appendices are a list of the experts who presented papers and a list of the conference participants. (Author/LLS)
