New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The intent of this long-range plan is to provide direction for local, regional, and state level planning so that technology can be applied more effectively to enhance the teaching/learning environment and to improve the management of schools in the state of New York. The plan expands the statement of direction outlined in the "Statement of Strategic Direction for Computer Technology" (1984) to address instructional applications, instructional support, and management applications of technology in a more comprehensive manner. The major sections of the report include: (1) a description of existing programs utilizing educational technology throughout the state; (2) an outline of the 24 assumptions underlying the "Vision of the Future" paper which was presented to teachers, district superintendents, and superintendents of schools for evaluation in the summer of 1989; (3) a synthesis and reorganization of the "Vision" paper based upon the evaluation; (4) an outline of critical elements required to implement the dimensions of the paper; (5) a list of impediments to implementing the plan, as identified by reviewers of the earlier "Vision" paper; (6) a statement of four major action recommendations proposed for approval by the Board of Regents for implementing the plan; and (7) recommended options for implementing the plan. Appended is a list of the technology network ties policies for statewide information systems as adopted by the State Board of Regents in 1989. The rationale for each policy is included. (GL)
