School-University Partnerships and Educational Technology. ERIC Digest.
Dodge, Bernard J.
Current thinking and practice involving the use of educational technology in collaborative activities between schools and universities are described. The most successful partnerships have been those in which both parties planned and prepared themselves well before starting. Adequate resources were allocated, and mutual respect between the partners was nurtured. This digest describes four categories of partnerships involving educational technology: (1) staff development about technology; (2) staff development with distance education as a medium; (3) research on educational technology, with the joint goals of benefit to both sides; and (4) the development of new educational tools. Some examples of partnerships in each of these areas are given. Specific recommendations are provided for successful partnerships, focusing on joint goals and reciprocal exchanges.
