Information Technology in Education: The Best of ERIC.
Ely, Donald P.
This publication highlights 48 recent ERIC listings which help to explain the variety of emerging technologies for the delivery of information in educational settings. Specific technologies addressed include cable television, electronic mail, satellite communication, teleconferencing, videodisc, and videotex. Entries were selected for inclusion based on recency (with most appearing since 1980), relevance to education, and readability, or ability to be understood by lay persons. Emphasis is on journal articles and documents which report results and which focus on one technology, rather than a combination of technologies. However, 11 general articles and documents are cited for the overviews they provide. Chapter 1 comprises an introductory summary of "Informational Technology and Its Impact on American Education," (published by the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment in November 1982), one of three such overviews which are noted as being most comprehensive and authoritative. An author index and ERIC ordering information are included following individual citations for each topic area. (LMM)
