Abstract

The study from which this report was derived explored concerns of school change facilitators (superintendents, principals, and technology coordinators) as they implemented new curricular requirements for instructional technology. This present report focused on one strand of concerns: distance education. Six informants expressed hesitation over the impending interactive video labs which were to be installed in their school districts, primarily over bad experiences from previous efforts in distance learning. Each informant expressed hope that the new systems would be useful. There appears to be the need for balance as the positive aspects of distance systems (service, teaching) are implemented against the negative aspects of distance systems (teaching changes, impersonalness).
