Linn, Marcia C.
This report summarizes the proceedings of a conference on the impact of computer technology on education. The 90 conference participants participated in small group meetings, panel discussions, and synthesis meetings, which focused on the following issues: (1) the implications of technology for changes in student learning, the curriculum, the role of the teacher, and the organization of the schools; (2) the relationship between technology in education and proposals for the reform of teacher education and the teaching profession; (3) the potential of technology for expanding theories of teaching and learning, especially via practice-sensitive, interdisciplinary research; (4) the barriers and problems inhibiting the incorporation of technology in teacher education generally and the corresponding need for incentives and resources to encourage and implement change; and (5) the benefits of coordinating the interests and expertise of universities, industry, and schools in order to infuse technology into education. The report of the conference proceedings elaborates on the issues and recommendations in an introduction and in individual sections addressing "Technology and the School of the Future,""Meeting the Challenge," and "Recommendations for Action." Figures and photographs are included in the text. Three appendixes consist of the keynote address (by John Sculley), the welcoming address (by Bernard R. Gifford), and a 32-item annotated software bibliography. (74 references) (EW)
