Overview of Schoolyear 2000: A Technology-Based System of Schooling.
Mory, Edna Holland
An overview of Florida's statewide school improvement project, Schoolyear 2000, is provided in this paper. Schoolyear 2000, to be implemented in 1994, is a collaborative plan to improve public education in Florida through the systematic application of technology to learning and teaching. The planning and design stage has involved the Center for Educational Technology at Florida State University, the State Department of Education, various citizens' and advisory councils, teachers, and administrators. The first part provides background information regarding the project's implementation, participative design, and assumptions. The second part describes the project's approach, which centers around individualized instruction, technology, and a collaborative and total system design. Ways in which these changes will improve the quality and productivity of public education are discussed in part 3. The approach used in the design and implementation of the system and the changes made during the planning stage are described in parts 4 and 5. The final part highlights present and future obstacles to the design and implementation of the system, which involve the bureaucratic process and the politics of funding. (LMI)
