"The technology that allows the communication of ideas and information through an electronic medium (such as a computer or a television) has transformed when, where and how we learn. This book shows that tele-learning - making connections between people and resources by sending and receiving signals through carriers such as wire, cables and air, for learning-related purposes - is a multi-faceted phenomenon, using and affecting many different types of people, and offering us a special opportunity to develop new pedagogies and improve old ways of learning." "Tele-learning in a Digital World takes a thematic approach: It examines the many scenarios where tele-learning occurs, such as distance education, online situations (the Internet and the World Wide Web), professional development via application sharing, and more, than discusses those involved in tele-learning - from parents and teachers to professionals in education and telecommunications - and their major roles. It then reviews current pedagogical practice and identifies the new opportunities for improved learning brought by 'tele-technology'."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This volume presents the results of a seminar sponsored by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and the U.S. Department of Education on the changing role of vocational education and training in Europe. The theme of the seminar--linkages between general and vocational training--represents a central concern of national policies as they redefine the role and position of vocational education and training in meeting new economic needs in ways that are educationally sound and, at the same time, satisfy the aspirations of young people. The general conclusion is that an essential requirement for any progress toward improving the effectiveness of vocational education and training is to raise its status and prestige in order to match those attached to more academically oriented education. In practice this means breaking down traditional separations between the two systems by reinforcing the educational component of vocational education and training while introducing more applied learning in general education. The book discusses these themes in the following eight chapters: "The Context and Rationale for the Reform of Vocational and Technical Education" (McFarland, Vickers); "The Political Challenge of Reforming Vocational and Technical Education: A Case Study from the United States" (Brand); "Tech Prep Education: An American Innovation--Linking High Schools and Community Colleges" (Warnat); "Compulsory Education and What Then?--Signals, Choices, Pathways" (Raffe); "Learning and Work: The Research Base" (Raizen); The Role of Employers and Unions in Facilitating the Transition to Employment and Further Learning" (Sako); "Policy Integration and Cooperation: A Persistent Challenge" (Drake); and "Linkages: A New Vision for Vocational and Technical Education" (Papadopoulos). Each chapter contains references. (KC)

Leaders in vocational education, according to this book, combine the fundamentals of their subject with elements of organization theory and concepts of leadership. These "blended" principles of successful vocational education are examined in Part I. The ten components of the vocational education delivery system are analyzed in Part II in the light of principles developed in Part I. Academic institutions, public and private, from secondary schools to universities, are considered, as are industrial training and governmental manpower programs. The unique aspects of each kind of organization are analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively, in terms of student enrollments, graduates' careers, faculties, curriculums, governance, financing, and relations with the community. Four developments in vocational education receive special attention. First is the universal college concept, which delays the specialized portion of a student's vocational training until he or she has accepted a specific job. Second is the dual delivery system, which gives as much emphasis to adult and continuing education as to the preparation of neophyte workers (funding via such revenue sharing devices as those of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 are important here.) Third is the shift in governance from state and local to regional units (a harbinger of this trend is the prime sponsor concept embodied n the CETA of 1973). Fourth is the growth of post-secondary vocational education, largely via area vocational schools and community junior colleges. Part III examines where vocational education is, advocates what it could be, and predicts what it likely will be in 1980 and beyond. Dr. Gilli's ideal model starts with the identification of "clusterable" personal goals among students; employs personalized teaching to identified occupational families and their characteristics; and utilizes skill centers to impart contracted-for skills from both academic and vocational subject matter. His forecast is guardedly optimistic; foreseeing neither a boom nor a bust in vocational education, he recommends substantial changes as a hedge against inflated criticism.
