Instructional Technology and the Teaching Profession


by Robert Bhaerman & David Selden — 1970

In the fall of 1968, I received a call from a representative of the Study of Instructional Technology in Washington, D. C. I was told that SIT would like me to do a paper commenting on teacher attitudes toward the introduction of electronic and other teaching devices. I felt that I would like to write such a paper, but I did not see how I could find the time. Also, 1 am generally opposed to the practice of ghost writing. By arrangement with SIT, it was agreed that I would collaborate with Dr. Bhaerman. Dr. Bhaerman and I discussed the general question of teacher attitudes toward technology in education over several lengthy sessions. Then Dr. Bhaerman set out to do the actual writing. While I generally approved of the result, there were points at which I wanted to add comment. Thus, the introduction is written jointly, while the body of the paper is written by Dr. Bhaerman. The material added by me is in italics. (D.S.)

About the Author
  • Robert Bhaerman
    American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO
    David Selden is President of the AFT; Robert Bhaerman is its Director of Research. This overview of teacher responses to educational technology is a joint effort, largely written by Dr. Bhaerman but with interspersed commentaries by Mr. Selden. We recommend that attention be paid to what they have to say about the significance of new differentiated staff proposals, the problem of hierarchical structures, and especially the need for •flexibility and regard for the individual teacher's autonomy.
