What Curriculum for the Information Age

Edited By M. A. White Copyright 1987

    First Published in 1987. This book has developed from a conference held at Teachers College, Columbia University on April 17, 1986, entitled “What Curriculum for the Information Age?” The idea for the conference evolved from discussions with the invited speakers who shared a concern that our public schools were not responding to the real potential that the information technologies hold for learning and for teaching. It was felt that the educational issue was not what technologies to buy, where to put them, or when to schedule instruction on them and that the real issue was the curriculum itself.
