Evaluating Technology Integration in the Elementary School: A Site-Based Approach.
This book enables educators at the elementary level to conduct formative evaluations of their technology programs in minimum time. Most of the technology is computer related, including word processing, graphics, desktop publishing, spreadsheets, databases, instructional software, programming, and telecommunications. The design of the book is aimed at evaluating the use of technology as it is integrated into other standard curricular areas, such as math or language arts, but the focus is on technology goals rather than curriculum goals. The book is divided into five chapters. The first provides an overview of technology and program evaluation. The second suggests a way to plan for the evaluation. The third explains how to collect the data to describe the existing technology program. The fourth explains how to interpret the data. The final chapter assists in the presentation of the evaluation report. The appendix contains the evaluation questionnaires. (TMK)
