Learning Technologies and Telecommunications in New York State: Action Recommendations.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Center for Learning Technologies.
The Learning Technologies and Telecommunications Action Recommendations proposed in this document for New York State are related to three major goals for cultural and educational institutions: (1) excellence--interactive learning technologies and telecommunications should be used to achieve quality within the New York educational system and applications should reflect the highest standards; (2) equity--technological resources, including the information conveyed by those technologies, must be available to all on an equitable, nondiscriminatory, and nonstereotyped basis; and (3) efficiency--use of technologies should be employed to achieve better use of educational resources and enhanced professional effectiveness. Barriers to the use of technology are listed, such as institutional concerns, inadequate staff development, lack of adequate software, and skepticism about long range results. A statement of the commitment of the New York State Education Department includes 15 action recommendations for using and fostering use of learning and telecommunications technologies. Also stated are the specific responsibilities of the Office of Elementary, Secondary and Continuing Education, the Office of Higher and Professional Education, the Office of Cultural Education, and the Office of Vocations Rehabilitation in promoting the development of technology in their respective areas.
