Proceedings of the National Videodisc Symposium for Education: A National Agenda (1st, Lincoln, Nebraska, November 12-14, 1986).
Sybouts, Ward, Ed.; Stevens, Dorothy Jo, Ed.
This symposium was a working meeting to develop an agenda for future action in education regarding videodisc technology. Following an introduction, three major presentations are provided: "An Introduction to Videodisc Technology" (Ronald W. Nugent); "Videodisc Applications and Implications for Education" (Orbry Holden); and "Planning Videodiscs in the Little Red Schoolhouse" (Ward Sybouts). Individual presentations on the use of videodiscs and research on their development and applications are then presented in 17 papers, which address such issues as the development of videodisc instructional programs; teacher preservice and inservice education in videodisc instruction; current uses of videodisc technology in public schools; interactive videodisc instructional programs in elementary classrooms, high school science, and university settings; use of interactive video to teach employment interview skills; and frameworks for examining and evaluating videodisc programs in public schools. Concluding remarks by John Prasch are also provided, as well as recommendations for a National Agenda for the Implementation of Videodisc and Laser Technology in Education; a brief description of the Second Annual Videodisc Symposium for Educators--Implementation of the Agenda to be held in October 1987, for which no proceedings have been published; and a list of the 1986 symposium participants. The text is supplemented by tables and figures, and seven of the 20 presentations include bibliographic references. (EW)
