Abstract

Computer technology and the World Wide Web (WWW) are increasingly being viewed as tools worthy of use in guidance counselling. Guidance counsellors must develop means to apply technology in their practices. The overall aim is to enhance various aspects of guidance service provision by integrating computer technology tools, especially, Internet resources. The following folio offers many ideas about, and utilizations for, technology in contemporary counselling. These papers further explore one specific area of technology (the WWW) that junior high school counsellors can utilize to provide diverse services to their clients (students, parents, teachers), and members of the larger school community. -- Today's professionals are faced with tremendous and constant change. Paper one discusses the changing role of today's guidance counsellors and the many challenges they face. Generally, it looks at those currently offered services that might be enhanced bv the use of information technology. Cautions for using these tools are offered. -- The second paper presents an overview of current and general technology resources useful to guidance counsellors and a discussion of counsellors' readiness to adapt these various tools. The paper explores the range of guidance services that can be augmented bv the use of technological resources. Specific illustrations of 'on-line' services are then presented. -- A model and prototype of one technologically enhanced guidance service are discussed in paper three. Specifically, this paper considers the integration of traditional guidance services and WWW resources. A sample on-line guidance site provides a model counsellors might follow when developing web-based services in their own settings. Guidelines useful to those considering developing guidance websites, are also offered. Suggestions for evaluation are included as well.
