Networking for Interagency Collaboration: Integrating Technology and Human Service Delivery. Report of a Satellite-Assisted Interactive Television Conference.
Brown, Alan R., Ed.
This monograph is the report of an experiment to utilize technology to assist in the addressing of a major national concern: the education of troubled youth. The major concern is whether satellite-assisted, interactive television can be utilized effectively to assist in conferencing, workshops, and other information sharing and problem solving endeavors. This question is addressed in five major sections: (1) Introduction, (2) the Framework for Networking and Interagency Collaboration, (3) the Satellite-Assisted, Interactive Television Conference, (4) Assessment, and (5) Implications and Directions for the Future. The Framework deals with what is known from national reports and studies about the problems of educating troubled youth in America, and presents a theoretical perspective about the problem, as well as concepts and ideas about networking and interagency collaboration. The Conference section details the background of and planning that went into the 2-day conference, highlighting the conference design and its proceedings. The Assessment section reports on the extensive conference evaluation which was conducted. The final section looks at the lessons learned from this first experience, alternative telecommunication technologies, ideas to develop networks, and targets for reform. The Appendix includes lists of participants and conference implementors, as well as summaries of major national reports and supporting documents. (Author/CHC)
