Fulford, Nancy, Ed.
Policy briefs are reports on the status of current issues in education from a national perspective; descriptions of actions and agendas in the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL) region; and commentaries by experts from their particular point of view; and resources for further information. The focus of this report is technology and education. The brief begins with a report entitled "Education as a Component of the National Infrastructure" (Dennis Gooler) that examines the role of schools in the national information infrastructure (NII). Next, regional actions and agendas are presented for the states in the region, i.e., Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The following information is given for each: local efforts; state efforts; financial aspects; key groups in education technology; educational equity; and education technology needs. Recent legislative developments are presented in the report "Recent Legislative Initiatives Expected To Affect Educational Technology," (Rafael Ramirez and Rosemary Bell). Finally, state contacts are listed. (JLB)
