Technology for Career Information Delivery. Conference Proceedings.
Kimmel, Karen S., Ed.; Blank, Joan C., Ed.
These proceedings contain 27 papers developed for a conference at which information was provided on currently available and future technological alternatives for delivery of career information. The presentations by staff of State Occupational Information Coordinating Committees, Career Information Delivery Systems, and hardware vendors are grouped according to the categories of alternatives discussed. The four presentations on automated alternatives cover batch processing, mainframes, telephone linking, and new distributed processing approaches. The next five papers focus on nonautomated alternatives: needlesort, the SCAN process, microfiche, telephone hot lines, and printed materials. Career information delivery through microcomputer use is addressed in seven papers that consider microcomputer delivery in Kansas; the move from a centralized system in Washington; microcomputer capabilities and costs; microcomputer effects on education; TRS-80 computers; and Winchester drives. The four presentations on special programs cover talking computers for the visually impaired; computer adaptations for braille and bilingual; Project Discovery, a guidance-based, simulated work, career educational system; and Systems Exploration and Research for Career Help (Search). The last seven presentations consider the use of a combination of alternatives to deliver career information in Iowa, Colorado, Georgia, Oregon, Maine, Florida, and Wisconsin. (YLB)
