The California Master Plan for Educational Technology. Submitted to the California Legislature April 22, 1992.
California State Planning Commission for Educational Technology.
The California Planning Commission for Educational Technology was established by state legislation (AB 1470) in 1989 to develop a California Master Plan for Educational Technology for K-12 education, the California Community Colleges, the University of California, and the California State University. The Commission discussed multiple issues; sponsored a summit conference on educational technology; gathered information on existing programs in California and other states; reviewed a variety of evaluation reports; sought the advice of educators and employers; and reviewed published and unpublished documents on education technology. The Commission has identified a number of objectives crucial to the future success of education in California and technology's contribution to that success. These objectives are incorporated in the nine recommendations developed by the Commission: (1) provide access to technology in every learning environment; (2) provide professional development and support; (3) establish and coordinate a statewide integrated linking of voice, video, and data networks to be called the Golden State Education Network; (4) establish and improve instructional and information resources; (5) establish a statewide student data resource for educators; (6) establish a statewide administrative/management information resource; (7) establish a state-level intersegmental education council and an industry council to collaboratively implement the Master Plan and to develop future plans; (8) provide for ongoing evaluation of the Master Plan; and (9) develop funding mechanisms to carry out these recommendations. A 16-item bibliography and a list of the members of the Commission are included. (Contains 9 references.) (ALF)
