Integration of the Resources of the Guidance and Counseling via Internet: Development of the "Guidance Network System (GNS)" in Taiwan.
Chiou, Hawjeng
This paper discusses the efforts of the Taiwan government to establish a more comprehensive and effective guidance program for Taiwan's youth. It lists the six components involved in the development of this program, and describes several projects that have evolved out of this effort. The core of the "Six Year Project of School Guidance Work" was the establishment of school counseling and guidance work from elementary schools through to universities. The "Youth Guidance Project" is an extension of the "Six-Year Project." It hopes to improve on the guidance program by: (1) offering more activities for students; (2) making the whole program more effective by merging forces of all teachers and administrators; and (3) having more resources available by integrating resources from a variety of areas and campuses. The "Guidance Network System" is the computer system used to link all of Taiwan's schools and provides the central guidance database. There is hope that Internet technology holds a promising future for guidance and counseling workers. (JDM)
