Using Electronic Technologies To Support Teaching and Learning: Building a Future.
Eastwood, Kenneth W.; And Others
The Oswego City School District is committed to creating--through the implementation of its technology plan--an environment that supports effective teaching and learning and prepares all students to succeed in a technologically sophisticated world. This report summarizes the efforts to build a community-wide consensus for a meaningful technology plan. Objectives set and accomplishments made during the first year and the remaining years of the five-year technology plan are identified. Also discussed in the report are: the evolution of the plan; the nature of the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) infrastructure that will support the educational program; classroom, computer lab, and building-wide computer resources; and library automation. In addition, long-term considerations, including the development of a long-term plan for network and systems support, video applications, and staff development are described. A glossary of terms is provided. Contains an article, "Teaching Tommorrow Today: Oswego City Schools Lead the Information Age..." by Dr. Kenneth W. Eastwood and two charts detailing the Oswego City School District Data/Video Network Design and the Network Design. (AEF)
