Updating teachers for tomorrow's technology : a strategy for action by James B Hamilton( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overall strategy is reported for updating secondary and postsecondary vocational/technical teachers in the technologies of their teaching areas. It is designed for use by vocational educators and others who provide technological update: local school, institution, and district administrators and boards; teacher educators; vocational/technical professional development leaders; business/industry representatives; and state and federal department of education personnel. The first chapter provides background on the need for the strategy, its development, and the nine essential strategy characteristics. Chapters 2 to 10 each treat one of the generic characteristics of a successful strategy for technological update: structure for action, roles and responsibilities, policy, resources, incentives and rewards, high potential techniques, alternative technique configurations, incorporation of update in programs, and continuing and self-renewing activities. Each chapter presents (1) a rationale for the inclusion of the characteristic, (2) guidelines for implementing the characteristic, and (3) specific details appropriate to the illustration of the discussion. Chapter 11 discusses the implementation of technological update programs at the statewide level and suggests an appropriate structure for administering such programs. Chapter 12 provides related recommendations for action to increase the effectiveness of current efforts to provide vocational teachers with technological update. (YLB)
Updating teachers for tomorrow's technology : programs & practices by Michael E Wonacott( Book )

8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports the results of work in identifying promising approaches to the provision of technological update to vocational/technical teachers, and discusses barriers and facilitators to the use of these approaches. Technological update refers to the technical knowledge and skills needed by vocational/technical teachers to provide students with the up-to-date technological preparation needed in the current work world. After information was gathered from the field, literature, knowledgeable observers, and vocational education institutions and agencies, researchers applied cost-effectiveness, complexity and locus of administrative control criteria to select those approaches that offer promise for secondary and postsecondary vocational/technical teachers. These approaches are described in general terms, and descriptions are provided of specific programs that exemplify each approach. Two different kinds of approaches were identified and are reported in the document. First, six specific delivery techniques are described: work experience internships; university and college course work; workshops, conferences, and seminars; industry observation; education and industry staff exchange; and part-time employment. Second, three different types of update programs are described: local programs, nonlocal programs, and industry training and updating programs. The result is nine descriptions of promising approaches to the task of providing technological update, each with its own potential for providing update, administrative characteristics, advantages, disadvantages, and barriers and facilitators. The need for further research on locating and generating funds for updating programs is suggested. (KC)

Technological update of vocational/technical teachers : a status report by James B Hamilton( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study examined the extent and nature of the problem of keeping secondary and postsecondary vocational and technical teachers in the United States up to date in the technology of their fields. During the study, 18 knowledgeable individuals were identified in 18 states to prepare papers on the need for and the problems of technological update of secondary and postsecondary vocational and technical teachers. Analysis of these papers indicates that large numbers of vocational and technical teachers at both the secondary and postsecondary levels are considered to have substantial or critical need for updating their knowledge of the technology of their field. Furthermore, this need exists for all occupational service areas examined. Despite the fact that a variety of approaches to technological update are being used, lack of resources in terms of money, time, and links with external organizations are seen as major barriers to the successful technological update of teachers. Among those approaches considered to have the greatest potential for successfully updating programs are workshops, conferences, and seminars as well as collaborative activities and programs among schools, business, and industry for teacher occupational experiences and curriculum content revision. Particularly needed is an overall teacher update plan that provides for effective selection, application, coordination, and management of the above-mentioned approaches. (MN)
Approaches to technological update of vocational/technical teachers by Michael E Wonacott( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports the results of work in identifying promising approaches to the provision of technological update to vocational/technical teachers and barriers as well as facilitators to the use of those approaches. (Technological update refers to the technical, as opposed to pedagogical, knowledge and skills needed by vocational teachers to provide their students with up-to-date preparation for the current technology of the world of work.) Information on approaches now in use to update teachers' technological knowledge and skills was gathered from literature, knowledgeable observers, and vocational education institutions and agencies. Criteria related to cost effectiveness, complexity, and locus of administrative control were then applied to select those approaches that appear to offer promise. Two different kinds of approaches were identified. First, six specific delivery techniques were described: work experience internships, university and college course work, workshops, industry observation, education and industry staff exchange, and part-time employment. Second, three different types of update programs were described: local programs, nonlocal programs, and industry training and update programs. Major barriers or facilitators include availability of funding, motivation, and policy. The result of the study is nine descriptions of promising approaches to the task of providing technological update, each approach with its own potential for providing update, administrative characteristics, advantages and disadvantages, and barriers and facilitators. The study recommended research to determine responsibilities of the various agents (teachers, administrators, state and federal departments of education, and business and industry) for updating and providing sufficient funds to carry out updating programs.
