Westbrook, Kathleen C. (1994). State-of-the-State 1994. Illinois: The Song without an End. This paper describes the state of public education in Illinois in 1994. Over the last 3 years, the state has tried to improve its educational system, but continues to fall short of its goal. Attempts to produce economic efficiencies come at the expense of educational programs in rural communities while decentralization efforts in Chicago try to implement what the rural schools have always had–parents, teachers, and communities working together. State incentives send mixed messages: consolidate and decentralize. State fiscal incentives are built in piecemeal fashion and the new accountability standards constitute rhetoric without a funding formula behind it. Political realities continue to encumber movement toward a fairer system within the state and agreement on how to fund the 1995 budget. Administrators continue to seek additional revenues or cut costs without understanding how curricular expenditures relate to overall fiscal health or efficiency. The current growth-spend-improvement curve is antiquated, and a new representation of educational realities must be developed if Illinois is to increase its literacy and graduation rates. This era of globalization, technology, and multicultural boundedness has created permanent changes in schooling, which require a new vision of collaboration. It is concluded that until the process of education becomes a focus, its inputs or outputs will not change.   [More]  Descriptors: Accountability, Budgeting, Educational Equity (Finance), Educational Finance

Aspen Inst., Queenstown, MD. (1991). Universal Telephone Service: Ready for the 21st Century? 1991 Annual Review of the Institute for Information Studies. The common theme linking the contributions to this volume concerns the future of universal telecommunications service. The goal of having a universal telecommunications service has historically been to keep charges low enough that all but the poorest Americans could afford to make and receive telephone calls, even if they lived in remote and expensive areas. For decades this goal was neither complicated nor controversial; this is now changing rapidly and profoundly. The essays in this volume explore and illuminate the implications. Following the "Foreword" (Gerry Butters) and "Introduction" (Robert M. Entman), the following papers are included: "Private Networks and Public Objectives" (Eli M. Noam); "What About Privacy in Universal Telephone Service?" (Daniel Brenner);"Technologies of Universal Service" (Susan G. Hadden); "Universal Service and NREN" (Barbara O' Connor); "Toward a Universal Definition of Universal Service" (Herbert S. Dordick); and "The Globalization of Universal Telecommunications Services" (Joseph N. Pelton).   [More]  Descriptors: Access to Information, Equipment Standards, Federal Legislation, Futures (of Society)

Hsia, H. J. (1988). Peering into the Future of Advertising. All areas in mass communications (i.e., newspapers, magazines, television, radio, films, photos, and books) will be transformed because of the increasing sophistication of computer users, the decreasing costs for interactive computer systems, and the global adoption of integrated services digital networks (ISDN). ISDN refer to the digitization of data, voice, image, and eventually movies stored in mainframe or microcomputer and transmitted or retrieved through a fiber optic network interconnected with anything and everything electronic. Because ISDN coupled with computers will not only change established media, but create new media, how advertising will change must be systematically studied in terms of: (1) the impact of the inevitable emergence of the new media and new professions; (2) advertising databases and their effects on the advertising and marketing practices; (3) the marriage between news and advertising and the probable wedding between broadcast and print media; and (4) the ramifications of electronic news publishing, advertising database systems, and the eventual globalization of communications. The new-tech environment is bringing about a future in advertising that will create a new media, new advertising, and new professionals.

1996 (1996). Action Learning. These four papers were presented at a symposium on action learning moderated by Lex Dilworth at the 1996 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development. "Developing an Infrastructure for Individual and Organizational Change: Transfer of Learning from an Action Reflection Learning (ARL) Program" (ARL Inquiry) reports findings from a study of a management development intervention called Action Reflection Learning (ARL). "Using Organizational Learning in an Action Research Intervention to Maintain Critical Technical Knowledge and Skills" (Deborah Duarte, David Schwandt) describes an organizational diagnosis and action research intervention that was guided by a model of organizational learning to identify and disseminate skills of National Aeronautics and Space Administration engineers. In the third paper, "Organizational Learning as Culture Construction" (ARL Inquiry), a theoretical model derived from field study data of an intervention performed with a multinational corporation attempting to develop globalization is described. "A Study of the Role of Learning Advisors in Action Learning" (Judy O'Neil) reports on the first phase of research in which some of the external and internal influences on a learning advisor are examined. Papers contain references.   [More]  Descriptors: Active Learning, Adult Education, Employer Employee Relationship, Employment Practices

McIntyre, Chuck (1997). Trends Important to Community Colleges. To help develop a long range plan for the California Community Colleges (CCC), a "futures research" project was undertaken to gather information on internal and external college trends and subject that data to various analytical and consensus-building techniques. In the project, a literature review was conducted, external forecasts for the colleges were analyzed, and internal forecasts were prepared and revised. This information was then presented to the CCC Chancellor and important trends were identified and prioritized. Following full Task Force and Consultation Council meetings, emphasizing consensus for all points of substance, the New Basic Agenda was developed, summarizing policy directions and setting an agenda for future policy development. Trends identified in the project as most important to the colleges included the following: (1) changes in demography, including increases in the number of 18-24 year olds and the diversity of students; (2) technological advances related to interactive communications and computer use; (3) longer and shallower economic cycles, increased outsourcing, and globalization; (4) social changes, including the advent of a multicultural society and increased living alone; and (5) changes in public policy, including decreasing federal control and continued inadequate funding. The project also identified pedagogical and policy trends that will affect planning, including the shift from teaching- to learning-centered institutions and increasing collaboration, as opposed to competition.

Australian National Training Authority, Brisbane. (1998). Eyes Wide Open–Vocational Education & Training in the Information Age. A Supporting Paper to Australia's National Strategy for Vocational Education and Training, 1998-2003. This paper has been written as a supporting paper to "A Bridge to the Future: Australia's National Strategy for Vocational Education and Training 1998-2003" (ED 420 764). Technology has an impact on industry in terms of the work done, how it is done, and how individuals live and do business. Globalization means that business–and the business of education–is conducted on a world stage. Workers must be skilled in technology to get jobs and do them effectively and competitively. Reforms in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) system provide components for providers to respond effectively to demand for customized products. Training Packages and the Australian Recognition Framework provide the elements for training programs that can be tailored to meet clients' needs. "Buyers" can be sure that training programs and products developed by registered training organizations from Training Packages are consistent, of high quality, and customizable to meet specific needs. Under the National Training Framework, "purchasers" of VET products can expect the same quality approach, industry-set competency standards, links to qualifications, and rigorous assessment. The practical impact on individuals is better access to information, access to more modern equipment and technologies, and more providers to choose from. The government's Networking the Nation initiative provides funding for rural and remote communities to identify communication needs and development and implement projects that meet them. Government leadership is needed in the critical areas of infrastructure, standards and product development, professional development, and change management.

Banach, William J.; Lorenzo, Albert L. (1993). Toward a New Model for Thinking and Planning: The Emerging Context for Life in America. Intended for use by individuals or groups in initiating strategic thinking and planning, this document provides national data on 21 dimensions of the environmental scanning process grouped into nine categories and presents a model of strategic planning. Following a brief introduction describing the importance of environmental factors in planning, data from the 1990 Census are described for the following areas: (1) demographics, including the aging of society, increasing racial diversity, and the shifting of the U.S. population center towards the southwest; (2) economics, highlighting the transition from industry to other sectors, disparity between workplace needs and worker qualifications, and polarization of wealth; (3) the political climate; (4) social values and lifestyles, reviewing trends related to at-risk youth, changing families and households, individual insulation from society, and increasing customer demands in an expanded marketplace; (5) the technology/information explosion; (6) the privatization of education; (7) paradoxical public responses to social problems; (8) changes in organizations such as the movement from homogeneity and mass production, increasing female influence, and greater awareness of our limits; and (9) increasing globalization. Finally, a model for strategic guidance is described, discussing predictable shifts in organizational context in the next few years (e.g., increasing dominance of external factors and an emphasis on quality), advocating a shift from product to process orientation, and presenting eight enhancements to traditional environmental scanning (e.g., developing an understanding of organizational relationship to the larger society and monitoring employee attitudes and public opinion).   [More]  Descriptors: Census Figures, Demography, Environmental Scanning, Futures (of Society)

Schirmer, Peter; Goetz, Stephan J. (1996). Occupational Trends: Education, Technology, Trade, and Corporate Restructuring. New corporate practices and strategies, technological advances and rising job skill requirements are making postsecondary training a virtual necessity for a high-paying job. This is driving a wedge between the earnings of education "haves" and "have nots." Corporate restructuring is eliminating hundreds of thousands of jobs, many of which belong to professionals and managers, but at the same time it is creating many different kinds of jobs. Kentucky may have a more serious problem with worker layoffs than other states because a larger share of its workforce is employed in occupations that are not growing quickly and because these workers do not have as much success finding new employment after a layoff. New employment might be found in technical jobs, particularly in health care, which will be among the fastest growing occupations in the coming years. Rural areas in Kentucky are already seeing rapid growth in these occupations. Four positive qualities of the digital age–decentralization, globalization, harmonization, and empowerment–have the potential to bring untapped opportunities to rural areas, such as Kentucky, because they enable professionals to live in rural areas and do their work at home. To ensure that Kentucky will thrive in the new economy, it is essential that workers and businesses have modern hardware and software which allow them to work and learn and conduct business over the Internet. College and other postsecondary education is also essential. (Contains 4 tables, 3 figures, and 48 footnotes.)   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Education, Career Change, Corporations, Dislocated Workers

Arizona State Univ., Tempe. Coll. of Business. (1993). Strategic Plan for the College of Business, Arizona State University. A strategic plan was developed for the Arizona State University (ASU) College of Business. Development of the strategic plan involved creation of ASU Business Partners, a group of over 40 representatives from the business community working closely with 47 faculty members and students to create a model "business school of the future" and to assess the impact of the changing business environment on professional education and research programs. The strategic plan was based on a vision of the University presented by the ASU President, a vision of the College of Business presented by its Dean, a mission statement developed by the Steering Committee of ASU Business Partners, and five Task Force reports. The College's mission statement outlines its commitment to: continuous improvements in quality, development of students' ability to manage a diverse workforce, information technology, an academic curriculum that combines rigorous theoretical knowledge with development of practical skills, globalization, excellence in teaching, meaningful research, and the community. Objectives and key strategic tactics for achievement of those objectives are outlined in the areas of faculty, students, undergraduate programs, Master of Business Administration program, research, doctoral program, economic development, and organizational development.   [More]  Descriptors: Business Administration Education, Educational Objectives, Educational Planning, Educational Strategies
