Educational Technology in New Jersey: A Plan for Action.
Wright, Pegeen M.; Scelza, Carol N.
Addressed to local school district policy makers, this plan reflects the State of New Jersey Department of Education's continuing effort to respond to the educational technology needs identified by the state's school districts. The purpose of the plan is to describe the department's role in assisting all districts in the development of policies, practices, and programs to increase and extend student learning through the use of educational computing and instructional television. The plan is divided into four major sections: (1) a summary of the rationale for technology use in the classroom as identified on a national and statewide level; (2) a brief review of current practices and research on the instructional uses of computers in education, computer equity, instructional television, and emerging technologies; (3) a discussion of existing technology-related services provided by the New Jersey Department of Education; and (4) a statement of department objectives and strategies for improving technology use in New Jersey schools. Two appendixes include a list of suggested readings on policy and research in the use of various forms of educational technology, and a list of the available resources in New Jersey.
