Live satellite broadcast to feature classroom technology

STANFORD -- "Classroom Design with Technology in Mind" will be the topic of a live satellite broadcast from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, Feb. 24, in Durand 450.

All interested faculty and staff are welcome to view this broadcast, which is co-sponsored by the Office of the Registrar and Stanford Instructional Television Network. A videotape will be available to anyone interested in learning more about this increasingly hot topic but unable to attend the live showing.

The broadcast will originate at the Institute for Academic Technology in North Carolina's Research Triangle. According to the institute, the broadcast will "use discourse and technology demonstrations to explore uses of multimedia, national technology trends, design of instructional technology facilities and distance learning technologies."

A panel of experts will demonstrate and discuss classroom design that matches teaching tools with pedagogy by incorporating six basic elements of instructional technology - microcomputers, networks, multimedia, display systems, student response systems and control systems. According to the institute, viewers "will see how different classroom configurations not only facilitate different kinds of classroom interaction but also create new opportunities for teaching and learning."

Because the capacity of Durand 450 is limited, faculty and staff planning to attend the live broadcast are asked to notify Associate Registrar Jack Farrell at 723-2033 or ak.jrf@forsythe. Those interested in viewing the videotape can arrange to do so by contacting Farrell's office.
