The use of instructional technology in twenty-first-century classrooms is not a subject to be debated. Rather, it needs to be embraced as a standard practice rather than an enriching activity. In Instructional Technology Tools: A Professional Development Plan, author L. Robert Furman presents a comprehensive guide to help educators embrace the use of instructional technology tools in the classroom. Answering the typical questions often posed by teachers and staff, Furman emphasizes the practical use of technology and introduces a breakthrough development called E-ProDev Days for offsite electronic professional development. He gives administrators the tools necessary to conduct fulfilling and meaningful professional development days, in-house or electronically, revolving around technology. Instructional Technology Tools: A Professional Development Plan also includes professional development lesson plans; tutorials for teachers and students; sample sites where examples of each e-tool are available to share; addresses to obtain the e-tools. Presenting a logical and practical approach to teaching a staff how to successfully use e-tools in their classroom, Instructional Technology Tools: A Professional Development Plan helps administrators help teachers to enhance their classrooms, manage time, organize themselves, and save money.

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)
