State Forum: Delivery of Technology Related Assistance to Meet Student Needs. Proceedings (Washington, DC, April 24-26, 1989).
Council for Exceptional Children, Reston, VA. Center for Special Education Technology.
The delivery of technology-related assistance was selected as the topic for the Center for Special Education Technology's 1989 annual technology use meeting, in order to emphasize the broad context within which technology use occurs and to focus attention on the continuity of services needed to appropriately apply technology. The meeting sought to provide a forum for state-level review of issues in planning and providing technology-related assistance and strategies developed to respond to the need for information and services. This document provides synopses of two presentations, one on the goals, initiatives, and programs of the Office of Special Education Programs and the other on the state of current practice in educational technology use, given by Bea Birman and Linda Roberts, respectively. These are followed by summaries of presentations made by participants from 12 states, who described their experience-based service delivery strategies. The participants discussed five dimensions of service delivery: information services, training and technical assistance, assessment and evaluation, funding, and statewide planning. Each of these five dimensions has a section to itself, and each section opens with a list of issues that states must deal with. The final section lists relevant technology resources and five suggested readings. (JDD)
