Excellence in Education through Technology: The West Virginia Task Force on Technology in Education Final Report.
West Virginia State Dept. of Education, Charleston.
There are three primary driving forces in West Virginia for responding to problems and for directing efforts concerning technology in education: (1) the "Master Plan for Public Education," calling for universal computer literacy, provides a framework for addressing within the educational system the issues, goals, and needs of an emerging information society; (2) the installation of a model of statewide computer-assisted education network has initiated an innovative approach to education that is planned to involve every school in the state; and (3) the commitment of the West Virginia educational system to technology has been demonstrated through the appointment of the West Virginia Task Force on Technology in Education. This monograph submits the final report of the Task Force to the State Superintendent of Schools. Information is provided on: (1) implementing the Task Force action plan; (2) the Task Force position statement, intent and visions, and recommendations; (3) assumptions; (4) a definition of technology in education; (5) programmatic implementation objectives; (6) identification of fiscal alternatives; and (7) disseminating the Task Force report. A detailed description of activities conducted by the Task Force to implement its plan of action is included in the appendices. (JD)
