Oregon's Technical, Human, and Organizational Networking Infrastructure for Science and Mathematics: A Planning Project. Benchmark Reports.
Lamb, William G., Ed.
This compilation of reports is part of a planning project that aims to establish a coalition of organizations and key people who can work together to bring computerized telecommunications (CT) to Oregon as a teaching tool for science and mathematics teachers and students, and to give that coalition practical ideas for proposals to make CT a reality. The goal of this document is to provide potential users, potential CT providers, and interested citizens with information that will help them in working together on grant proposals. Reports in this document include: (1) "What Are the Current Visions for Use of Computerized Telecommunications in K-14 Science/Mathematics Education in Oregon, in the USA, and Internationally" (R. D. Frederick); (2) "What is Currently Being Done in Oregon, Nationally, and Internationally to Use Computerized Telecommunications in Educational Settings?" (Tim Lauer and Marion Rice); (3) "What Technical Systems Currently Exist, and What Can Current Technology Do?" (Martha Dean and Jim Worden); (4) "What Are the Barriers to Using Computerized Telecommunications in Educational Settings?" (Marc Sorensen); (5) "How Does Using Computerized Telecommunications Relate to Educational Reform in Oregon, Nationally, and Internationally?" (Daniel Domenigoni); (6) "How Are Educational Professionals and Others Currently Being Trained to Use Computerized Telecommunications?" (Michael Jaeger); and (7) "Technological/Social Trends for Computerized Telecommunications: Which Technologies and Organizations Will Best Ride the Wave?" (Deanna Campbell Robinson). Three appendices include charts and graphs; materials provided at "Telecommunications 101, The Oregon Telecommunications Forum, November 1, 1994"; and "A Paradigm Shift in K-12 Education" (Greg Bothun).
