  Restructuring Education Through Technology, by Theodore W. Frick, Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation, 1991
For education to occur there must be a teacher who guides, a student who intends to learn, content to be learned, and a context or setting in which the guidance and learning occur.
Educational systems are highly centralized, making it difficult for community members to have much direct influence on what happens in the system.
In a restructured educational system, there could be a greater variety of "teachers." The educational resources of the system could be used by community members during evenings and on weekends.

 Educational Technology: An Extended Literature Review
Educators must expect more kinds of technology including more telecommunications, more networking, more interactive learning, more multimedia learning environments, more computerized speech and handwriting, more databases, more desktop publishing, more materials for special learners, and more materials that are fun for learners.
The educational technology literature indicates that although a significant start has been made, there are still serious barriers to the widespread adoption of the type of student-centered, real world, technology-rich education our modern information society requires.
Educational administrators who resist change and are unwilling to share leadership responsibilities with teachers, and 6.

 Criteria for Evaluating Information Technology in K-12 Education
One difficulty in changing a system is that it tends to remain the same.
One educator in Indiana has joked that the problem of getting our schools to change is like trying to change the direction of a big elephant going 100 miles per hour.
Only after schools begin to develop high quality information technology systems, with the goal of creating a technologically literate graduate, will students be prepared to meet the challenges and expectations of the information-age society.

 The Value of Adaptivity in Hypermedia Learning Environments
Using the student model, InterBook distinguishes several educational states for each unit of ET: the content of the unit can be known to the student (all outcome concepts are learned or well-learned), ready to be learned (all prerequisites are learned or well-learned), or not ready to be learned (some prerequisite concepts are not yet learned).
In a study involving 25 undergraduate teacher education students in an educational computing elective at the University of Technology, Sydney, students were exposed to two chapters of a textbook about the database and spreadsheet mdoules of the integrated package ClarisWorks, and used the InterBook system both with and without adaptive link annotation.
First, students who did not spend a reasonable time with the system were excluded, and once this was done we found no significant difference in the test results for the group with adaptivity and the group without.

Benefits of Web-based education are clear at hand: learners from all over the world can enroll in learning activities, communicate with other students or teachers, can discuss and control their learning progress - solely based on an internet-capable computer.
A challenging research goal is to tailor the access to web-based education systems to the individual learners' needs, as determined by such factors as their previous knowledge on the subject, their learning style, their general attitude and/or their cultural or linguistic background.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of recent trends and perspectives in adaptive systems for web-based education, and thus to continue the series of workshops on this topic held at past conferences.

 Education Grants
Funding is focused in five areas: student learning, teaching excellence, preparation and advancement of educational practitioners, performance of educational systems, and early childhood education.
The mission of the Toshiba America Foundation is to contribute to the quality of science and mathematics education in U.S. communities by investing in projects designed by and with classroom teachers to improve science and science-related education for students in schools, grades 7 thru 12.
Many of their grants support public education by expanding and promoting career education opportunities, assuring the readiness of young children to enter and succeed in school and fostering arts education programs.

 ET&S [3(3)] Can abstraction be used as a unifying guideline to design intelligent educational systems?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
a given system is assumed to be built by assembling well-defined and well-specified existing components, chosen according to the system purpose and the users’ profiles.
In a problem-solving domain educational system, one can define four fundamental operating modes (Lelouche and Morin, 1997b), based solely on the student’s main goal for using the system (either to learn or to assess his learning) and the underlying type of knowledge (either domain knowledge or problem-solving knowledge).
In moderating this discussion, my inner belief is that abstraction may play an important role, first to make the modelling of the various knowledge elements of an educational system as simple and systematic as possible, and possibly later to guide the description of a generic framework for designing such a system.

 Vol 12: InterBook: an Adaptive Tutoring System (Article)
However, many web-based educational applications are expected to be used by very different groups of users with minimal assistance from a human teacher, and hence there is a need for systems which can themselves adapt to learners with very different backgrounds, prior knowledge and learning goals.
Since microcomputers were introduced into education in the late 1970's one of their primary uses has been as a teaching tool through the use of educational software.
It is worthwhile at this point to ask "What is adaptivity?" Adaptive hypermedia systems are capable of altering the content or appearance of the hypermedia on the basis of a dynamic understanding of the individual user, to adapt the content or presentation to certain characteristics of the user.

 New Times Demand New Ways of Learning
More specifically, in transparent systems, the user is not - and does not need to be - aware of the process, procedures, and protocols by which the hardware and software effectively perform their functions.
The system operator is in charge of what information and resources go into the system, when they are entered and distributed to others, and so on.
The premise behind distributed systems is that the resources that enable and give shape to learning are spread across many people and places both within the local system and outside it (e.g., the Internet).

 Interoperability of Web-Based Educational Systems
Nowadays learning resources are increasingly available via web-based educational systems, such as learning (content) management systems, electronic market places for learning materials and courses, or knowledge repositories.
While standardization bodies and consortia such as ADL, CEN/ISSS, IEEE, IMS, and ISO have already identified the need for interoperability of web-based educational systems, learners’ choices to fill a particular knowledge gap are in many cases still limited to the offers of the system they are registered at.
Selected papers will be fast-tracked for publication in a special issue of IEEE TCLT's Journal of Educational Technology and Society scheduled for April 2006.
