Utilizing Shared Decision Making in Developing a Computer Technology Comprehensive Plan for a Small, Rural, K-12 Campus.
Crumley, William H.
This practicum was designed to utilize a shared decision making (SDM) committee model as a mechanism through which a long-range, comprehensive computer technology plan would be developed for a Jackman (Maine) school system. On-site research coupled with an extensive review of current literature produced a finding that long-range technology education planning had not previously materialized in the school due to the ad hoc fashion in which computer technology had pervaded the curriculum. A committee was established utilizing a shared decision making model. All parties with a vested interest were represented in the process. The sole charge to the committee was the development of a comprehensive computer technology plan. The results of the practicum were positive. A comprehensive computer technology plan, which will guide computer budget preparation and curriculum development, was developed and subsequently accepted. Copies of surveys used in the needs assessment, a project timeline, and the completed comprehensive computer technology plan are appended. (Contains 67 references.) (Author/KRN)
