Technology and Education: Policy, Implementation, Evaluation. Proceedings of the National Conference on Technology and Education (January 26-28, 1981).
Institute for Educational Leadership, Washington, DC.
Thirty-nine papers on the place of technology in education are collected in this volume of conference proceedings. Several themes run through the collection, appearing in different combinations in different papers. Among the major topics discussed are the applications of computer technology to different aspects of instruction and school administration; the uses of broadcast and cable television and radio and of video technology in on-campus and off-campus instruction; and the formation of consortia of educational institutions to share the costs and benefits associated with courseware development and dissemination. Other major issues considered include the nature of the changes that technology will bring about in traditional and nontraditional education; the role of the government in developing educational technology; the concepts affecting the development of effective courseware; and the effects of educators' attitudes on the adoption of new equipment and methods. The majority of the papers consist of informed opinions or generalized analyses of the status of educational technology, while others describe specific programs or suggest techniques for implementing and applying technology.
