Bridging Learning Opportunities: AMTEC '93 Conference Proceedings (Windsor, Ontario, Canada, June 14-16, 1993).
Selby, Stuart, Ed.; Marzotto, Esio, Ed.
The bridging theme of the AMTEC'93 conference provided the stimulation to look beyond traditional boundaries: across international borders; across levels of disciplines and school systems; across social differences and across individual differences. These bridges can help make learning more effective, as can attention to related contemporary issues including learning to do more with less; reaching out to the nontraditional student and, the new technologies--teaching about them, using them, and analyzing their effects. This volume contains about half of the papers presented at the conference relating to the bridging theme. The papers are as follow: "The Guelph-Waterloo Video Link" (G. W. Ballantyne); "Gone But Not Forgotten" Videodisc Technology Bridges the Past to the Present" (Danielle Fortosky, Teresa Thacker, and Todd Zazelenchuk); "CMI Behind Bars: Comparative Analysis of PLATO Between Two User Groups" (Genevieve Gallant); "The Survival of a School District Media Production Department" (Gregory Gutenko); "AIMS CoPlanner: Computer Software to Facilitate Preservice Resource Teacher Education" (Leonard Haines); "A CAL Project: Money Skills for the Intellectually Disabled" (I.
