Strategic Planning for the Successful Integration of Technology in a Private School.
Valovich, Diane E.
This practicum provides solutions to private schools interested in creating a strategic plan for the integration of technology into all areas of the school program. In includes teacher participation and involvement in developing short and long term goals, ideas for developing continuing technology training for teachers, and a process for the evaluation of software. Through the formation of three committees: Technology Planning, Staff Development, and Software Evaluation, a venue was created for teacher participation in the technology planning process. Teachers worked together in creating a vision for the future that includes integrating technology into all areas of the curriculum. As a result of this planning process, teachers began to take a greater interest in technology. Many teachers served on committees, participated in inservice training programs, and developed more positive attitudes toward using technology in their classroom. Three figures present the technology integration summary; technology planning pre-test results; and technology planning posttest results. Appendices contain: the teacher survey (September 1995); technology planning survey (June 1996); teacher planbook insert; technology planning committee survey; staff development survey; technology audit form; CD-ROM evaluation form; software evaluation form; and sample committee journal.
