Handbook for Technology Planning in Texas Public Schools, Winter 1991.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This handbook provides guidelines for planning, implementing, and evaluating technology for the purpose of improving student achievement in school districts across Texas. These guidelines are not intended to replace currently successful district practices, but to provide one model of a step-by-step method for planning and implementation. The handbook does not describe what hardware to buy or which software is most effective. Background is provided in a discussion of state and local initiatives that resulted in the handbook. Planning for optimum results is discussed and includes general components of a plan and a review of local board approval. Other planning issues are reviewed, including research and development, maintenance and support, and competitive bidding. A checklist of planning points is given. Appendix A reviews state technology initiatives, and Appendix B lists 4 references and 15 resources for further information. (SLD)
