The Key Elements of Effective State Planning for Educational Technology.
The purpose of this document is to provide a guide for education technology planning. A state educational technology plan is a written strategy that outlines the way a state proposes to integrate educational technology into its overall educational goals. The report has been divided into three categories: preparing, writing, and evaluating. Stage One covers preparation of the plan including the strategic vision, goals and objectives, needs assessment, scope, political issues, defining stakeholders, organizational stakeholders, model schools, funding, equity, staff development, and vendors and outside consultants. Stage Two identifies these key elements in the written plan: vision, mission statement, goals and objectives, strategy, scope, training and staffing requirements, evaluation criteria, technical standards, cost estimates, timeline, glossary of terms, and upgrading, maintenance, and obsolescence strategies. Stage Three examines the evaluation component of the plan. A summary includes tips from the experts in state educational technology planning. Also provided are a checklist and a list of resources to aid in the planning process. (JLB)
