The Technology Advisory Council: A Vehicle for Improving Our Schools.
Austin, Tackett; And Others
This book is designed to help a Technology Advisory Council (TAC) get a start at helping children obtain a better education--an education that prepares them for adulthood in an information age society. The advisory council is a representative group of stakeholders, i.e., the people who are affected by decisions and those involved in implementing the decisions. This book provides a sense of direction for some things that a TAC might do once it is started. The book is divided into 10 chapters: (1) The Electronic Classroom; (2) Overview of Computers in Education; (3) Building a Technology Advisory Council; (4) The Strategic Planning Process; (5) Gathering Baseline Data; (6) Megatrends: Computers in Education; (7) Current and Future Technology; (8) Goals for Computer Technology in Education; (9) Staff Development as a Change Agent; and (10) Final Remarks. The appendices include letters which provide background information to stakeholders; a number of funding sources that can help a school increase its uses of technology; a network of contact people, places, and projects; an annotated list of some fundamental readings; and a list of videos that can help TAC members and others learn about educational uses of computers. A glossary of key terms is included. (TMK)
