The Technology Coordinator.
This booklet is written for educators who want to play a leadership role in the instructional use of computers and other information technology in precollege education. Although it is oriented toward the United States and Canada, many ideas are applicable in other countries. The first part of the book, the preface through Chapter 10, is a discussion of the role of the technology coordinator. The second portion contains interviews with seven technology coordinators in middle schools and high schools in urban and rural districts of varying sizes. The third section consists of 17 appendices presenting articles that the author has written since 1983 highlighting issues surrounding the use of educational technology. The emphasis in coordinating technology use in schools has switched from a focus on the computer itself to a focus on learning environments that are facilitated by computers. The technology coordinator now works to facilitate effective use of a wide range of computer-related information technologies. (Contains 61 references.) (SLD)
