Guidelines for the Design, Production, Development, and Use of a Telecommunications Program in Schools.
Griffin, Gary A.; Wilson, Elizabeth C.
This document, the second of two based on a study of telecommunications in the schools conducted by Designs for Education, uses data from the first volume as a basis for discussion and recommendations concerning the integration of telecommunications into elementary and secondary education. Intended for use by the professional in education and telecommunications, this book is a comprehensive text about effecting change in school practices. A description of the study framework emphasizes levels of decision making identified by John I. Goodlad (1966) and the curricular decisions to be made at those levels. Data sources for decision making are suggested, and findings from the original study are presented in terms of the framework and as a way to illustrate the data sources in use. A staff development strategy is then suggested as a means to accomplish the goals of curricular decision making and implementation. The components of a support system designed to meet the needs of introducing telecommunications into schools are described, and categorized as intellectual; management of the environment; provision, allocation, and use of resources; evaluation; and communication. Guidelines for the development, production, and use of a telecommunications program in schools are then advanced and recommendations are offered for further action. (LMM)
