New Technology and Its Impact on Educational Buildings.
The results of the OECD's recent work on the impact of new technology on educational facilities are presented in this document, which draws particularly on the proceedings of an international seminar held in Rochefort-sur-Mer, France, in June 1991. The introduction identifies issues posed by new technology to educational facility designers and managers, and includes two articles: "Myths and Realities," by Jacques Herbenstreit; and "The Task of Educational Building Designers," by Sam Cassels. The second section summarizes seminar papers with regard to changes in technology, society, education, buildings, and technology-based learning in continuing education and training. Seminar papers and authors are listed. Technological, societal/political, and education/training trends are described in section 3, and the fourth section offers forecasts for buildings, structures, and use of building space. Section 5 provides conclusions pertaining to: the interface between technology, education, and society; changes in the educational structures and methods; and changes in buildings. Adaptability must be built into the system to accommodate the great pace and impact of change as the world moves into a postindustrial, information-based era. Two figures are included. References accompany individual sections. (LMI)
