Ignition! Fueling the Education Explosion: Proceedings of Conference 1 (Cleveland, Ohio, May 5-6, 1983).
Gardner, Mary, Ed.; Reed-Mundell, Charlene, Ed.
These proceedings contain four presentations and other materials from a conference to provide public schools with information about change so they can take a leadership role in educating for the future. The opening address (Richard Berendzen) discusses changes affecting education and changes in education. "Megatrends: Implications for Education Leaders" (Michael H. Annison) addresses the fundamental restructuring of the United States from an industrial society to an information/service economy and other economic and demographic shifts that affect education. "Inventive Reasoning: Processing Knowledge into Understanding and Creativity" (Robert E. Sparks) promotes three aims for education: teaching of facts, techniques, and theories; developing reasoning skills to understand underlying meanings; and developing inventive reasoning skills to generate new possibilities. "The Schools and Planning for the Future: Some Basic Considerations in the Process" (Joseph F. Rogus) identifies a set of "school in society" and "school in school" considerations for futures planning. Other contents include "Education in the Future," a background paper prepared for Ohio's Commission on Educational Excellence; "Planning for Change: University Circle Incorporated," the narrative that accompanied the slide presentation about the role of the University Circle in Cleveland; summaries of action sessions; local action plans; and listings of participants.
