Education and Learning in the Information Age: Challenges and Opportunities. Offered in Recognition of the Thirtieth Anniversary of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) and the ERIC Counseling & Student Services Clearinghouse.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Counseling and Student Services, Greensboro, NC.
A triad of educational information specialists--counselors, librarians, and educational media personnel--play a pivotal role in the acquisition, evaluation, and use of information by students across the educational spectrum. In order to explore how these specialists use information, how collaboration can draw disparate specialization areas together, and how networking between educators and the university can be promoted, the ERIC Counseling and Student Services Clearinghouse hosted a conference at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The "Education and Learning in the Information Age" Conference covered the following topics: (1) "Starting an Educational Process We Can't Finish" (B. Dessy); (2) "Responses to Blane Dessy's Keynote Address Setting the Context for Learning in the Information Age" (K. Wright); (3) "Media and Counseling Professionals Use of Technology" (S. T. Gladding); (4) "Running as Fast as We Can Just To Keep from Falling Too Far Behind" (R. Purdom); "Reactions by an Experienced Educator of Librarians" (M. Miller); (5) "Information-Coin of the Realm" (J. N. Lester); (6) "Libraries and Librarianship in the Information Age" (D. J. Hulbert); (7) "Teaching, Learning, Technology and Higher Education" (A. E. Uprichard); and (8) "A Summing Up and a Look to the Future" (G. R. Walz). A list of presenters is included, and ERIC and ERIC/CASS resource lists are appended. (EMK)
