SUNY/K-12 Learning Technology Partnerships for Enhancing Educational Opportunities in Schools and Homes.
Benson, Gregory M., Jr.
The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, it provides the background to and describes the evolution of a major State University of New York (SUNY) research and development effort to create and demonstrate a unique model of learning which delivers interactive, multimedia mathematics curriculum to learners in their homes. This model was developed with support from the U.S. Department of Education, SUNY, the Syracuse City School District, New York City Districts #5 and #12, Adelphia Cable, Cablevision, and Instructional Systems, Inc. This model involved teaching mathematics through the use of cable television and computer assisted instruction (CAI). Second, the paper describes a number of other recent SUNY efforts to forge cooperative efforts between SUNY campuses and K-12 schools to shape and apply learning technologies in support of student instruction and teacher training in local schools, workplaces, and homes. The projects described are: distance learning efforts; "Regents Review Live," a series of 2-hour review courses to help students prepare for New York State Regents exams; and satellite-delivered professional development for both preservice and inservice teachers. It is also noted that SUNY Central played a major role in the creation of the Great Lakes Collaborative, a three-state network of 81 schools connected via Internet. Contains five figures and three appendixes. (Author/JLB)
