These papers, divided into six sections, provide an accurate indication of thinking about technological literacy (TL) in the U.S. "Main Problems and Issues" contains four papers which discuss the needs, challenges, and benefits of developing TL. "Technological Literacy: Concepts and Measures" includes six papers which discuss multi-disciplinary aspects, problems of measuring TL, and institutional implications of developing TL. "Higher Education" has 11 papers which look at the role of TL at various institutions of higher education, from universities to community colleges, and its implications for the liberal arts and sciences. "Kindergarten through Grade 12," contains eight papers which concern themselves with the methods, materials, and conceptual structures of programs to develop TL at those levels. "Technological Literacy and the Minority Learners" includes three papers which discuss the special role of the development of TL among minority and ethnic students. "Innovations in Educational Technology" presents four papers on the use of new technologies in the educational process, especially video and video discs. A discussion of the relationship between humanists and technologists, and a final essay on TL conclude this collection. (PPB)
