Mississippi Master Plan for Education Technology. Final Report.
Mississippi Council for Education Technology.; Mississippi Center for Educational Leadership and Technology, Marlborough.
This plan provides a framework for incorporating technology into the educational lives of Mississippians. The recommendations set forth are based on the comprehensive needs analysis and statewide study of existing educational technology initiatives conducted by the Center for Educational Leadership and Technology in the spring and summer of 1995. This document contains a brief explanation of the planning methodology, key findings and recommendations from the Interim Report (June 1995) and design principles and implementation strategies for the integration of technology into the Mississippi educational system for the next 5 years. The plan is divided into 10 major sections: (1) curriculum improvement and technology integration strategies/changing nature of curriculum; (2) education technology system design; (3) education accountability and reporting system design; (4) learning environments and facility planning; (5) distance learning; (6) professional development plan; (7) education technology policy and procedures; (8) technology standards and procurement strategies; (9) roles and responsibilities, staffing positions, and organizational structure; and (10) program monitoring and evaluation plan. The plan also discusses local technology planning; funding issues and strategies; implementation staging and phasing; and multiple viewpoints on the benefits of a statewide plan for educational technology. Changes in teaching, learning, and management that may be expected as a result are highlighted. (AEF)
