University of Hawaii (Oceanography, M.Sc.1971)

Career Experience: John Southworth is a Research Associate for the

University of Hawaii Curriculum Research & Development Group and a

science/technology teacher at the UH Laboratory School. After his

undergraduate education he served as a science and math teacher with the

United States Peace Corps in Malaysia. After completing his graduate

study he has worked in science and technology education at the University

of Hawaii and with other educational technology projects. In 1974 he

founded the Educational Computer Unit, the original educational technology

support unit on the UH campus. In 1984 he was designated as one of the

"Electronics Using Educators of the Year" by the Electronic Learning

magazine "for significant contribution to the advancement of education

through technology." He served as co-director of the original University

of Hawaii Computer-Based Education Planning Committee in the 1970's.

Among results of that effort was the acquisition of services of the PLATO

Computer-Based Education system. He has, since 1980, been involved with

UH Lab School distance learning programs and projects. From 1985-89 he

worked with the Hawaii Department of Education (HDOE) in developing the

TELEclass Project that led to later development of the HDOE educational

and informational technology programs. During that time he participated

as a member of the Apple Computer Education Advisory Council on

telecommunications and distance learning. He has authored various papers

on the topic and wrote a chapter in the Networking Volume of the Learning

Tomorrow Series. From 1995-98 he worked as Coordinator for the Technology

Collaborative of the Pacific (that worked with the Hawaii-Pacific

educators under the Regional Technology in Education Consortium) that has

been addressing the issues of equity and access to educational technology

for students, teachers and administrators in the Pacific region. He

helped found the Pan Pacific Distance Learning Association that annually

presents programs for educators during the Pacific Telecommunications

Conference in Honolulu.

Contributions to March 2000 planning conference: His extensive

background with both years of work in professional development and integrating

technology in the classroom provide a realistic view of the realities of

educational use of technology and distance education. His international

living and working experiences, especially in Asia and the Pacific region,

provide additional value and understanding of the issues involved with education overseas.

Steve McCarty, born in Boston, specialized in Asia (B.A.)

and then Japan (M.A.) at the University of Hawaii. He resides on

the island of Shikoku in southwestern Japan with his wife Chisato

and two sons in a local elementary school. A rare foreign full

Professor in Japan, Steve teaches English as a Foreign Language

in Mac, Windows and Language Labs. Since 1983 he has been

nationally active in the Japan Association for Language Teaching,

including the highest appointed office representing all research

groups. In 1996 he organized a colloquium on cross-cultural

communication at the University of Hong Kong Knowledge and

Discourse Conference. In 1997 his multilingual online library

of publications was given a 4-star rating "very useful for research"

by the Asian Studies WWW Virtual Library based at the Australian

National University. His electronic text initiative with Japanese

and European collaboration, including an online guidebook to the

region in 5 languages, is among the links to Steve's works from

the Japan WWW Virtual Library at Stanford University. From 1997

to 1998 he wrote a series on computing in Asia for Humanist,

based at London University. In 1998 he delivered the opening

Keynote Address of the Teaching in the Community Colleges Online

Conference based at the University of Hawaii. He also presented in

Japanese on distance education at Kyushu Institute of Technology,

at a conference session broadcast by two-way satellite to 15

universities. He was elected President of the World Association

for Online Education, an NPO registered in California, from

1998-2001. Since 1998 he has also increasingly assisted the

Global University System in the Asia-Pacific region and overall.

In 1999 his research on Japanese-English bilingualism and

biculturalism appeared in a Japanese language collection of

papers by a major linguistics publisher. His article on online

education in Japan then appeared in the well-known educational

technology magazine Educom Review. Steve's three articles

on Japan and 12 photos have been accepted by an encyclopedia

forthcoming in 2000. Over 100 of Steve's publications and

Websites are available from the online library menu at URL:


Benefits to Colleagues in the Philippines

Steve McCarty joined the Global University Consortium in 1998,

and it has become a long-term commitment, working closely with

colleagues from around the world, especially in the Asia-Pacific region.

Steve has been assisting Dr. Takeshi Utsumi more and more with

clerical work such as developing Global University System (GUS)

Websites, translating documents into Japanese, and editing documents

written in English as a second language. Representing GUS to an extent

in Japan, Steve has been asked to help organize a subsequent GUS

Workshop in Tokyo. By attending the Manila Workshop, Steve could

gain valuable first-hand experience to serve delegates to Tokyo from

the Philippines and elsewhere in the region.

Long study and experience of intercultural communication

points to being helpful without being patronizing. This experience included

an internship with Benjamin Cayetano, now Governor of Hawaii, the

highest-ranking American of Philippine ancestry. Having edited books

and many other writings by non-native users of English, Steve can

maintain their style while getting their intended meaning across more clearly.

Again, by going to the Philippines, Steve can assess where his skills may be

needed as the University of the Philippines Open University and other

scholarly institutions in the Philippines work more closely in the future

with the Global University System.

The general patternis liable to continue where Asia-Pacific nations

including the Philippines look to Japan for economic and technical assistance.

Steve's Japan base, contacts, fluency and literacy in Japanese may prove helpful

in long-term trust-building negotiations, as English does not provide an

effective enough link between Japan and other countries.

Steve is an American with permanent residency status and the only resident

of Japan among those nominated to the NSF to attend the Manila Workshop.

Steve maintains the following GUS Web pages and directories, with

related information on the Philippines appearing throughout the Website:

Subject: PRPO

Thanks for keeping me abreast on the workshop in Manila. I am particularly

interested in Latamore's Pacific Regional Program Office report of their

experience in telemedicine. There is a lot to learn from their experience

summarized in Pointers from the Pacific. Perhaps the conference can also

include discussion of alternatives to telemedicine that are more applicable

to developing countries, such as the development of tele education centers

that Rex Librerio had mentioned. Our Virtual Class on Nutrition could use

these for the continuing education of nutritionists and dietitians. My trip

in June is to assist the Nutritionists/Dietitian's Association of the

Philippines set up a distribution system in the country.
