K-12 Technology Planning at State, District, and Local Levels. ERIC Digest.
Anderson, Larry S.
Thanks to ever-increasing high-level advocacy and the added incentive provided by Goals 2000 legislation, many states have completed or are working on school technology plans. Although technology planning occurs at multiple levels, many principles are identical, and with careful cooperation, facets of a plan at one level will often "dovetail" with facets of other plans. Planners need to engage the services, creativity, and assistance of all stakeholders. Efforts of all participants in the planning process need to be marshaled to meet established timelines, to accept delegated responsibilities, and to evaluate progress. Then a plan can be created which addresses appropriate financial, technical, functional, architectural, and legal realities. (Contains 15 references.) (BEW)
