Kirks, Sandra H.; Sterling, C. H.
The role of copyright and other limitations on use of educational software and the effective training of teachers to utilize changing technology were the focus of the third and final session of a 1983 series of educational technology review panels. Daniel Brooks and Michael Remington discussed the current and changing status of copyright regulation and legislation. Policy implications of copyright law for federal funders of educational software, including television, were addressed by Richard Huber of the National Endowment for the Humanities, George Tressel of the National Science Foundation, and Frank Withrow of the Center for Libraries and Education Improvement (Department of Education). New technology and software rights were discussed by Eugene Aleinakoff, an attorney, John Carey of New York University, Larry Benincasa of Reston Publishing, and John Cecil of the Public Broadcasting Service. The need for proper teacher preparation and training for a changing technology was considered by Charles Tidball of George Washington University, Mont Mondale of the Educational Computer Service (National Education Association), Allan Hershfield of the Instructional University Consortium for Telecommunications and Learning, and David Wormser, an attorney for the Association of Data Processing Service Organizations. Paul Mertins and Joan Katz made brief presentations on current National Center for Education Statistics projects and research, including an arrangement with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for several joint projects. An appendix lists 11 readings. (LMM)
