Improving School Curriculum through Technology.
Frazier, Peggy; Reed, Patty
Educators and administrators have many things to consider before setting up a distance education facility at their schools. They will first need to decide what type of distance education technology will best benefit their students and schools. Administrators will need to decide if they want to use programming that is locally controlled or purchased from a national provider, as well as how much money they can afford to spend on such technologies, and whether to set up cooperative networks to offset the costs. Instructors must be trained in how to use distance education technology in order to provide effective computer-based education. This paper discusses the role of television-based and Internet-based instruction in distance education as a means of improving and expanding curriculums, and increasing educational opportunities in rural and remote school districts. Use, considerations, assessment, and limitations are outlined for both television-based and Internet-based instruction. (Contains 23 references and 2 appendices of further readings and Web sites of interest.) (AEF)
