This booklet is written for educators who want to play a leadership role in the instructional use of computers and other information technology in precollege education. Although it is oriented toward the United States and Canada, many ideas are applicable in other countries. The first part of the book, the preface through Chapter 10, is a discussion of the role of the technology coordinator. The second portion contains interviews with seven technology coordinators in middle schools and high schools in urban and rural districts of varying sizes. The third section consists of 17 appendices presenting articles that the author has written since 1983 highlighting issues surrounding the use of educational technology. The emphasis in coordinating technology use in schools has switched from a focus on the computer itself to a focus on learning environments that are facilitated by computers. The technology coordinator now works to facilitate effective use of a wide range of computer-related information technologies. (Contains 61 references.) (SLD)

This report offers the conclusions of a 1983 EPCOT symposium on education and the Information Age involving distinguished national experts and 46 secondary school principals from across the country. Discussed in the first section on "The Demands of an Information Age" are a number of transitions, including current shifts from an industrial to an information work force, from a national to a global economy, and from a centralized to a decentralized society. Section 2, "The Future World of Work," includes a list of new technology-related occupations for the 1990's and reviews prospects for non-technology jobs, preparation for the 21st century, and business-education partnerships. In the following section, "High Tech is Here to Stay," the authors examine current uses and needs for computers in the classroom, the need for a definition of computer literacy, and gaining high tech acceptance. Exploring the "people side" of high tech, section 4 focuses on computer-aided instruction and professional development. Section 5's "action agenda" for creating high tech schools makes step-by-step recommendations for program implementation and discusses the role of the principal in realizing each step. The document concludes with a list of EPCOT conference participants. (JBM)
