Connect, Compute, and Compete: The Report of the California Education Technology Task Force.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This report addresses the integration of technology into California's kindergarten through twelfth grade classrooms to prepare students for the job market and for college. The report sets goals for technology integration with a 4-year plan, assesses its cost, and proposes funding and implementation strategies for reaching those goals. The report provides four recommendations: (1) telecommunications infrastructure, hardware, and learning resources--equip every California classroom and school library with the technology resources needed to create a learning environment that will improve student achievement; (2) student content and performance standards--incorporate technology into student content and performance standards recommended by the state for adoption at the district level; (3) teacher content and performance standards--integrate technology into the content and performance standards that will be used to set policies for preparing, hiring, evaluating, and promoting teachers; and (4) technical support--provide expertise and resources needed to support the effective use of technology by students, teachers, parents, and the broader community. (Contains a cost worksheet and 34 references.) (SWC)
