New Training Technologies. Studies on Technical and Vocational Education 2.
This book is the second in a series aiming to promote international exchange of ideas, experiences, and studies relating to technical and vocational education. Information provided is designed to help educators and trainers plan for an intelligent use of new training technologies (NTTs) to improve the access to basic and advanced lifelong learning that will make it easier to get a job and continue to find employment. Chapter 1 discusses the reasons why NTTs may be used in education and training. Chapter 2 presents information on how NTTs can be used in group and individual learning. Chapter 3 suggests a methodology to select the most appropriate NTT for a particular curriculum or course. Chapter 4 offers practical hints for introducing NTTs in a training institution. Chapter 5 mentions trends for the next few years to help make the best possible investment in NTTs. Eight appendixes present technical aspects of NTTs' descriptions: (1) compatibility (personal computer buses/architecture; microprocessors; operating systems; graphic modes; digital images, sound, and video files; color standards; and videotape formats); (2) suggested PC configurations; (3) laser technology; (4) digital versus analog; (5) digitizing; (6) telecommunications and training; (7) more technologies for training; and (8) training the disabled. Contains a glossary. (YLB)
