Ed Tech Ô94 - February 17, 1994

Topic: Educational Media Technologies of the Future
Program Sponsor: Ueland Junder McCauley, Architects and Planners
Location: Franklin Institue, Philadelphia, Pa.

It was a panel presentation of experts and an open discussion
mini-conference for heads of school, trustees and media program directors.
The conference proposed providing understanding of leading-edge and
evolving technologies and their implications for elementary and secondary
education.
As each panelist spoke the word ÒplanÓ was reiterated They spoke about
building new facilities, as well as, changing existing facilities. One
panelist said plan for flexibility in your room size, shape, wire access,
and lighting. Another panelist foresees the role of the teacher as a
guide, a master learner, and a facilitator. Someone suggested the
possibility of offering teacher incentives to become more involved with
technology. Schools should tap the resources of their parents, especially
in private and parochial schools, to help with wiring the existing schools.
Lastly, they spoke about marketing strategies. Schools should create that
Star Wars mood.
