Educational Technology and Educational Reform in Saskatchewan.
Schwier, Richard A., Ed.; And Others
This document offers a view of educational change that has educational technology at the center of the process and underscores some of the contributions educational technology can make to reforming education in Saskatchewan (Canada). The province has an excellent teaching force and communities that value education highly, but there is a prevailing concern that they are "out-of-step" with society--approaches to teaching need to be drawn more into line with dramatic changes taking place in society. The following papers are included: (1) "Educational Technology and Educational Reform: Why Bother?" (Richard A. Schwier); (2) "Saskatchewan Educational Reform: The Roles of Teachers and Learners" (Peggy R. Proctor); (3) "School as Technology: Creating Environments to Teach All Students" (Patricia Cone); (4) "Educational Technology and Professional Development" (Todd W. Zazelenchuk); (5) "A Plan for Marketing Educational Technology" (Cole Kirby); (6) "The Economic Implications of Educational Change" (Victor Anton); (7) "Distance Education and Computer-Mediated Communication: Tools for Educational Reform" (Robert G. L. Longpre); and (8) "Industry/Education Collaboration: Opportunities and Approaches" (Robert O. Powell). Three figures illustrate the discussions. References follow each chapter. Includes five appendixes. (Author/SLD)
