New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Elementary and Secondary Education Planning, Testing, and Technological Services.
The purpose of this publication is to help school district leaders improve the use of technology in schools through the design and implementation of a planning process. Three levels of the process are noted, including strategic planning of overall direction for program improvement, program planning of objectives and management, and curriculum planning, which specifies how technology will be integrated into the classroom. The guidebook is organized around seven major tasks: (1) develop a planning structure and process; (2) establish a direction; (3) develop program plans; (4) create curriculum applications; (5) design the technology support system; (6) prepare for implementation and change; and (7) evaluate performance and effectiveness. Each task is described in a separate section that provides a rationale for the conduct of the task, a description of the process for carrying out task-related activities, exhibits and illustrations of planning activities, and key considerations in carrying out the tasks. A checklist of tasks and steps is included, as well as a glossary of terms and lists of national and state technology planning resource organizations and individuals. References are listed by tasks.
