The National Information Infrastructure: Requirements for Education and Training.
National Coordinating Committee on Technology in Education and Training, Alexandria, VA.
The National Coordinating Committee for Technology in Education and Training (NCC-TET) has developed these requirements to ensure that the National Information Infrastructure (NII) provides expanded opportunities for education and training. A number of national organizations have contributed to these requirements, which are intended to be used in policy formation and legislation. With regard to access, the requirements ask that all Americans have affordable access to the NII, that it be accessible in a variety of learning environments, and that public and private partnerships be developed to help ensure access. Both public and private information resources should be made available to schools of various types, libraries, and arts and cultural institutions. The second group of requirements is in the area of education and training applications. These eight requirements deal with coordinated activities, research and development, the dissemination of information, and evaluation of information applications. The third set of requirements focuses on technical needs, including transmission approaches, user needs, and issues of security and standards. (Contains 9 references.) (SLD)
