Subject: Educational Uses of Information Technology
EDUCOM's Educational Uses of Information Technology (EUIT) Program
Join your peers at EUIT's Seventh Annual Snowmass Working Session,
August 5-7, 1992 - an opportunity to exchange ideas, get involved in
EUIT's active project working groups, and develop new ones. This
year's theme is "Transforming Information Technologies into
Educational Realities: You and I and EUIT."
Program Highlights: Steve Ehrmann of the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting, and Carrie Regenstein of Cornell, will examine the
potential of technology to transform and extend educational
opportunities, and discuss how organizations can and are changing
their structure and activities to exploit the benefits of information
technology. Ehrmann's work with The Annenberg/CPB Project provides a
broad perspective on innovative uses of technology; Regenstein's work
at Cornell with regional faculty workshops gives her a practical
perspective on implementation.
James Noblitt (Modern Languages) and John Risley (Physics) will focus
on applying technology to the logic of specific disciplines, and
technology's role in catalyzing changes in teaching and learning in
their fields. Risley has been instrumental in identifying quality
physics software and making it available through experimental
distribution programs; Noblitt has developed one of the most
successful foreign language software packages, and has toured and
consulted widely as an IBM consulting scholar.
Professional development sessions will focus on publication,
dissemination, and fundraising strategies.
