Learning and Technology in the Future. Report of a National Science Foundation Workshop (Washington, D.C., October 4-6, 1993).
Sabelli, Nora H.; Barrett, Lida K.
A report of a National Science Foundation (NSF) Workshop highlights the thoughts of a group of experts on the basic underlying principles of technology use in education, goals for integrating technology into the educational system, and methods for further enhancing the quality of education through technology use. The workshop provided an open forum for a group of 50 individuals with different perspectives to address strategies and define the next steps for technology use in education with an overall focus on the issues of culture change in schooling. The report is broken into three parts: underlying principles, goals, and next steps. Principles that underlie effective and appropriate technology use in education include the following topics: curriculum integration; educational reform; models of the role of technology; financing technology; the role of teachers; learning outside of school; leadership; access to information; technology as a tool for inclusion; technology policy; and cooperation between the public and private sectors. Goals based on the underlying principles highlight the following: full participation in the global interactive community; a set of common tools and modes of technology; self-sustaining mechanisms for continuing collaboration between educators and the community; incentives for developmental support; modified restrictions; and change in educational budget policy. A set of next steps are provided, based on the underlying principles and goals. An outline of an appendix available separately from NSF is provided. (AEF)
