Intelligence and Schooling. Fueling the Education Explosion: Proceedings of Conference 2 (Cleveland, Ohio, November 17-18, 1983).
Gardner, Mary, Ed.; Reed-Mundell, Charlene, Ed.
These proceedings contain presentations from a conference whose major topics were real-world intelligence, artificial intelligence, and linkage between the education and corporate sectors. "People, Perspectives...Potential and Possibilities" (Elyse S. Fleming), which was the conference's closing speech, briefly summarizes the information presented at the conference. "New Directions toward Understanding 'Real World' Intelligence" (Robert Sternberg) suggests ways to broaden one's conception of intelligence. "Getting Steerage on the '80s" (Harold "Bud" Hodgkinson) looks at the increased amoung that businesses are expending on educating their own work force, new alliances the public schools are making with businesses and communities, and how to form more adaptive intelligence. "The Computer as Coach: Applying Artificial Intelligence to Education" (John Gallagher) discusses a new field in computing--artificial intelligence; the implications of this kind of programming for instruction; how computers can enhance intelligence; and how computers can be a tool to better understanding intelligence. A section entitled "Excerpts" contains action session summaries, transcriptions from a sharing session, and evaluations. An appendix provides brief descriptions of the conference sponsors, lists steering committee members, and presents acknowledgements. An addendum presents summaries of a panel on "Intelligence and Schooling," which was designed to discuss variables critical to the development of intelligence. (YLB)
