The Hawaii Educational Dissemination Diffusion System Plan.
Min, Kellet; And Others
Hawaii's endeavor to use information technology to improve educational practices within the state is described in four major sections: (1) the framework of the plan, including a brief history of dissemination, the goals of the plan, and philosophic statements on resources, linkages, and leadership; (2) the resource component, including an examination of databases containing knowledge resources for teachers and administrators, and an examination of services by brokers and vendors which promote access to databases and manually accessed data files; (3) the linkage component, which concerns the connection between knowledge resources and persons who could benefit from using them, and which discusses the personal attributes needed by linkers, knowledge required by linkers, and services they provide; and (4) the leadership component, which considers some of the concepts that guided the development of this plan--i.e., coordination among state agencies, creation of a supportive environment, financial support requirements, and evaluation--in the context of the three major functions of planning, supporting, and evaluating. An executive summary with recommendations concludes the report. (FM)
