Survey of instructional development models by Kent L Gustafson( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper, which updates and expands on a paper by Twelker and others that identified and described five instructional development (id) models, presents a taxonomy for classifying id models, comments on the limited degree of testing to which most id models have been subjected, reviews 13 models, and provides a selected, annotated bibliography of eric documents and journal articles announced in Resources in Education and Current Index to Journals in Education. A definition of id and a discussion of its origins are followed by the taxonomy that is used to divide the id models into four categories as they focus on the classroom, the product, systems, or organizations. Specific models are described and discussed in each of these categories: (1) classroom--Gerlach and Ely, Kemp, Davis and others, Briggs, and DeCecco; (2) product--Banathy, and Baker and Schutz; (3) systems--the Instructional Development Institute, Inservices Procedures for Instructional Systems Development, Courseware Development Process, and Gilbert Front End Analysis; and (4) organizations--Blondin, and Blake and Mouton. Thirteen figures illustrate the taxonomy and most of the models. A guide to searching eric for additional publications on id models is included, and the annotated bibliography lists 10 journal articles and 11 documents. A list of 23 other references is also provided. (Chc)
Libraries for the national education goals by Barbara K Stripling( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the major educational initiatives of our times--the National Education Goals outlined and endorsed in 1990 by the nation's governors, and President Bush's America 2000 strategy--this report reviews and summarizes information about the role of libraries in many different educational efforts designed to meet the national goals. It is argued that libraries can and must play a pivotal role in meeting these goals, including efforts to prepare students to cope with learning in an information age (resource-based learning), and to provide a national electronic network for students, teachers, administrators, and community members (the National Education and Research Network). This work provides direct evidence of the relationship between existing and developing library programs and the national education initiatives, citing specific examples whenever possible or appropriate. A separate chapter is devoted to each of the six goals to be reached by the year 2000. Within each chapter, information is presented for each of three spheres of influence defined in "Education Counts: An Indicator System To Monitor the Nation's Educational Health" (U.S. Department of Education, 1991)--learning and schools, social context, and national values. Within each sphere of influence, examples of ways in which libraries can contribute to meeting the goal are presented together with research findings, comments, and highlights of programs already involved in the types of activities related to a particular example, and sources of the information given are cited. A 15-item selected bibliography of sources on which this work is based concludes the report. (Bbm)

A practical guide to preservation in school and public libraries by Maxine K Sitts( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph provides some starting points for beginning preservation activities in libraries within a framework of three key essentials: awareness, judgment, and advocacy. In the first section, the text is concerned with how public and school libraries can both contribute to, and benefit from, the vast amount of preservation information that is available at national, state, and regional levels. Examples of preservation initiatives and programs by national, state, and regional groups are provided. The second section lists a number of resources for incorporating preservation-conscious procedures and skills into public and school libraries. The resources relate to the following preservation themes: planning/general approaches, environmental conditions, maintenance, repair, binding, local history, media, disasters and emergencies. In addition, some general examples of how to begin preservation activities are provided. In the third section titles of resources are given to promote preservation advocacy to library supporters and funders, vendors, and users. Concluding the monograph are annotated lists of comprehensive references and bibliographies about beginning preservation activities. A discussion of the national preservation agenda is appended.

The direct use of online bibliographic information systems by untrained end users : a review of research by Michael Eisenberg( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews the current extent of, research into, and future expectations for the use of online bibliographic retrieval systems by untrained end users rather than by trained search intermediaries. Six sections cover: (1) studies of direct end user searching, done primarily with students or persons in highly technical fields; (2) problems to be addressed before end user access can become common practice, including the variability of search procedures and the user's possible lack of computer, online searching, and information seeking experience; (3) suggested solutions to these problems, including standardization of online search procedures, training of end users, and the development of user-friendly system modifications; (4) methods and systems currently used to train novice online users, including trainer, diatom, and iida (Individualized Instruction for Data Access); (5) current research into user-friendly system modifications, with descriptions of vss (Vocabulary Switching System), conit (COnnector for Networked Information Transfer), iida, tsw (The Searcher's Workbench), PaperChase, MICROsearch, cite (Current Information Transfer in English), and ol'sam (Online Search Assistance Machine); and (6) projections concerning the future direct use of computer information systems. A 54-item bibliography is provided as well as a 38-item annotated bibliography of eric publications and information on how to order eric documents. (Esr)
An overview of videodisc technology and some potential applications in the library, information, and instructional sciences by R. Kent Wood( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This discussion of several of the issues and systems of videodisc technology as applied to the library, information, and instructional sciences is based upon the Utah State University Videodisc Innovation Projects. Descriptions of the major marketed videodisc systems, as well as those soon to be marketed, are given. A critique of the abc/nea Schooldisc Program is also included. A 72-item list of references and selected bibliography is provided, which includes references dealing with fault tree analysis (sometimes referred to as "fault free analysis") as a recommended tool to assist with the smoothing out of the diffusion process for videodiscs. Library, information, and instructional specialists are seen to be in a position to play a major role in that diffusion process. (Author/LLS)

Television and children : a review of recent research by George A Comstock( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review of recent empirical research on the effects of television on children and teenagers begins by examining the results of two surveys which were conducted to determine the opinions of experts in the field. A brief statement of the findings indicates that experts generally agree that television harms formal scholastic achievement while providing general knowledge; that it has contributed to misperceptions about sex roles, ethnic groups, and politics; that it has increased aggressive behavior; and that it has increased the degree to which children behave as consumers. Empirical evidence is then examined to determine whether or not this evidence supports what the experts say. Seven areas are considered: (1) time use (the time children spend watching television); (2) the viewing experience; (3) knowledge, beliefs, and perceptions (defined as a wide range of cognitions that television may influence among children and teenagers); (4) viewing's impact on violence and sex roles; (5) scholastic achievement; (6) advertising; and (7) behavior (the physical actions and sequences of physical action that arguably could be said to be influenced by television). It is noted that there is a large, if varied, body of empirical evidence now available on this topic which variously supports, qualifies, calls into question, or has little to say about the opinions of the experts. On the whole, it is concluded that, although the research to date is highly informative in many respects, it is only moderately informative about the accuracy of the experts.

Microcomputers and the media specialist : an annotated bibliography by Inabeth Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of the literature reflecting the rapid development of interest in microcomputer use in education since 1978 is followed by an annotated bibliography which lists books, articles, and eric documents in nine categories. The first section includes materials of general interest--historical background, guides to using computers in the educational process, books for home hobbyists, cost studies, and others not classifiable elsewhere. Considerations in purchasing computers for both small- and large-scale investments are emphasized in the section on hardware. The software section lists publications which analyze sources, problems, evaluation criteria, and computer review access needs. Varied educational applications are grouped together, while library projects, collection building and access, community teaching, and online systems are topics included under the library applications heading. The alternative sites section includes publications describing computer uses in museums, learning parks, summer camps, prisons, hospitals, parks, and community centers. A section on games and toys focuses on electronic learning aids, video games, and classroom computer simulations. Computer literacy and future prospects are the final topics. An author index and list of journals (with addresses) complete the bibliography. (Lmm)

Computerized networks among libraries and universities : an administrator's overview by Lewis B Mayhew( Book )

3 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is an overview of the present and possible future trends in networking, the use of computer communications technology to facilitate the sharing of information and computer resources over great distances. The text reviews networks already being used by universities to share instructional resources and computing ability, and by libraries to facilitate systematic acquisition, serial control, and retrospective bibliographic searches. Networking implies problems of uniformity of users, unused capacity, fee sharing, and financial support; each problem is discussed in depth. With an awareness of possible budgetary and political constraints, the present state of network technology is discussed and predictions are made for the future. (Emh)
School library media centers and networking by Mary Robinson Sive( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking as its point of departure the landmark paper, "The Role of the School Library Media Program in Networking," this study assesses the state of networking involving school libraries in mid-1982, with emphasis on operations of substantial significance to students and teachers and resource sharing. An analysis of the networking concept and definitions of the term are followed by a thorough overview for the uninitiated of the development of library networking in the United States, with particular attention to those involving school library media centers. Background pertinent to schools is then examined, including other such cooperative arrangements in the school environment, student use of public and other libraries, and theoretical justifications. Accounts of school library networking in 14 states are provided--Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin--and the final chapter summarizes the major themes that pervade the subject, formulates some tentative conclusions, and suggests topics in need of further investigation. An extensive bibliography is provided, and selected excerpts from state statutes, interlibrary loan policies, and other documents are appended. (Bbm)
