The following forms the proceedings of the NATO-supported Advanced Study Institute held at the University of Salford, located near Manchester, England, during the period 16-28 August, 1992. The need for this Institute was stimulated by the 1 recommendations from the NATO-supported Research Workshop, held in 1990 , which stated that the role of advanced educational technology in the delivery of technology education be explored in considerable detail. The Institute focused on the key elements of: i) the philosophical and educational foundations for the use of advanced educational technologies in the delivery of technology education, ii) advanced educational technology, and iii) the development of integrated implementation plans employing research from both elements. The partiCipants comprised some 60 selected leaders in the field of science and technology education, drawn from the practitioner, doctoral and post-doctoral levels, and included decision-makers in local and national administration and government in the NATO and CEE (Central and Eastern European) countries. The participants were addressed by a number of keynote speakers expert in various fields. The papers presented and the responses on the participants to the issues developed through the poster sessions, are summarised in these procedings. It is hoped that the work encapsulated herein makes for interesting reading, and assists and educates those active in these areas of educational endeavour.
