With the increasing importance of information technology and access to local, state, and global information networks, it is vital to have a statewide plan for providing all elementary and secondary students with the knowledge and skills to manage and use information. Without a statewide plan, large groups of schools and their students will be left behind, unable to stay abreast of continuously changing technologies. This report provides the framework for a statewide Minnesota information technologies system. It covers trends in information technologies; findings regarding information technologies, and ten recommendations for a comprehensive information technologies system. Recommendations are provided on the following topics: (1) student engagement and access to technology; (2) curriculum and instruction; (3) learning assessment; (4) computerized student records; (5) computerized financial management and record keeping; (6) parental and community engagement; (7) professional development; (8) access and connectivity; (9) leadership; and (10) funding. Appendices include: information technology history and trends; task force meeting dates, locations, and presentation topics; task force biographies; and resource team biographies. (SWC)
