Invitational Forum for the Development of Coordinated Statewide Leadership in Educational Technology (California, July 14, 1982).
Jenks, Lynn, Comp.; And Others
Reports on a forum sponsored by the California State Department of Education in cooperation with the California School Boards Association and the Far West Laboratory for Education Research and Development, which was held to identify the most critical needs for educational technology in the state and to discuss possible strategies for meeting these needs. The final consolidated list of six critical educational technology needs--which were determined through small group brainstorming sessions and voting by all participants--is presented: (1) state and local planning; (2) public awareness of technology literacy issues; (3) adequate funding for planning and implementation of educational technology; (4) a new view of curriculum development and instruction incorporating technology; (5) staff development; and (6) formation of an educational technology clearinghouse. Proposed strategies to meet these needs are discussed; and participants' comments on the process and outcome of the forum, as well as highlights of remarks by the two speakers, are summarized. Appendices include a list of the names, organizations, and addresses of all participants; the agenda for the forum; and an outline of the needs identified by each of the small groups. (ALF)
