Educational Technology Resource
From two hundred to three hundred professional papers
are presented at a typical ICTE Conference on Technology and Education,
with each paper addressing one of the eight to twelve Themes selected by
the ICTE Program Committee for that particular Conference.
These papers are published in the ICTE
Conference Proceedings following each event, and most persons
attending the Conference purchase a set. In addition, many other
individuals, libraries, and other organizations purchase the
Proceedings. However, this unique resource is nevertheless limited
to a small percentage of the worldwide education community.
In 1999, the ICTE Board of Directors made a decision
to publish the papers presented at annual ICTE Conferences on the ICTE
web site, in addition to publishing these as Conference Proceedings. In addition to publishing papers from current and
future ICTE Conferences, the decision was also made to publish papers
from recent past ICTE Conferences on this web site, including ICTE
Edinburgh 1999, ICTE Santa Fe 1998, ICTE Oslo 1997, ICTE New Orleans
1996, and selected papers from still earlier ICTE Conferences
that are still relevant.
This Educational Technology
Resource Library represents a unique resource that will
continue to grow from year to year as papers from each new ICTE Conference
are added, and as selected papers from previous Conferences are added.
Access to the Library
Anyone may access to the Library at no charge.
The cost of maintaining and adding papers from each
ICTE Conference to the library will be underwritten by the proceeds from
each ICTE Conference.
Initially, no registration is required; however, after
an initial test period, we will ask that anyone accessing the Library
register on this ICTE web site. The information for registration
will remain confidential to ICTE and will not be shared with any other
group or organization.
Selecting and Printing Documents
The Papers being added to the Educational
Technology Resource Library are in the .pdf format, and can
be viewed on-line using the Adobe® Acrobat® Reader™. They can also
be printed on your local printer using the Print function in the Acrobat
If you do not have Acrobat Reader installed on your
computer system, it is available from the Adobe web site, and can be
downloaded and installed without charge.

ICTE is currently in the process of
placing Papers from ICTE Tampa
1999 in the Resource Library;
plans are for this to progress at a rate of about 30 - 35 papers per
week for the next several weeks.
Following the completion of ICTE Tampa 1999
papers, we will continue with ICTE Edinburgh 1999, and then ICTE
Santa Fe 1998, and so on. For Conferences prior to ICTE New
Orleans 1996, papers will be selected based on their continuing
(Note to ICTE Tampa 1999 Presenters:
This process, as well as publication of the ICTE Tampa 1999
printed, bound Proceedings was delayed due to serious and continuing
problems with ICTE's Internet Service Provider over the past several
months, and the resulting change in June, 2000 to another ISP.
Unfortunately, continuing problems with the new ISP, including
unsatisfactory service and support, have further contributed to
delays. We regret the delays, but in order to make publication of
the ICTE Papers both in printed form and on-line on this web site economically feasible,
it has been necessary to plan for software utilities and related process
for digitization, indexing, and access that we can support on the ISP
that we use.
