TIEDS (Technology Integrated Educational Delivery System). A K-12 Master Plan for the Infusion of Technology into Arizona Schools in the Teaching/Learning Environment.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This report presents the plan for the Technology Integrated Educational Delivery System (TIEDS), which was developed for the Arizona State Department of Education in response to the "State Board Policy on the Development of a Plan for Technology" and the "GAITS Report," to establish the conceptual framework for educational change and technological advancement in Arizona's elementary and secondary schools. It is noted that the state TIEDS program is designed to accomplish a systematic change in cognitive and social environments resulting in the promotion of meaningful learning; restructuring of administrative and organizational offices; curricular reform; and an increase in quality, equity, accountability, and efficiency for all of Arizona's students. Divided into four sections, the plan discusses: (1) a rationale for TIEDS, including changing demographics, globalization, and costs; (2) issues and concerns, i.e., quality, equity, accountability, and productivity; (3) the ability of technology to meet educational needs; and (4) TIEDS educational environments, the use of work stations, and telecommunications networks. Copies of the Arizona State Board Policy, the GAITS ("Grow with Arizona Integrated Technology Systems") Report, and the goal and six objectives of TIEDS are appended. Also included are a glossary and listing of members of the TIEDS Work Group. (38 references) (DB)
