Summary

A national program is necessary to discover and implement the best ways to utilize educational technology. Several university centers for research and development on instructional technology could provide a basis for national initiative in this field. These centers should carry out basic research on systems theory, with emphasis on such fields as learning theory, communication theory, information theory, cueing theory, game theory, decision theory, and automata theory. An intensive program should be carried out to improve the present instructional hardware available and to provide the necessary software to utilize them most effectively. The present laws and regulations concerning education need examination and an ethical code for the most effective operation of instructional media needs to be developed. A network should be instituted which would eventually be capable of handling all instructional media which can be transmitted on networks. An appropriate evaluation program and demonstration centers will also be needed, as will trained educational technologists to carry out the program which is developed. In conclusion, the author offers some ideas about the international implications of such a program and he outlines a proposed budget. (JY)
