Visions of the Future: Considerations for Shaping Educational Networking.
Learning Tomorrow. Journal of the Apple Education Advisory Council, n4 p299-308 Win 1988
This paper summarizes the general issues discussed at the September 1986 conference of the Apple Education Advisory Council and during the Advisory Council's deliberations about the future. The general issues are categorized within four topics--technical considerations, people considerations, human/technology interface considerations, and network utilization--and specific suggestions are made for each of the topics. In general, it is argued that educators and administrators should be planning how to network people rather than technologies. Risks must be taken, it is suggested, and new projects must be developed and evaluated so that lessons learned can be brought forward into the design of future systems. Finally, it is argued that future-oriented models of networking must be process models so that future systems can be redesigned readily as they are being built. (EW)
