Success in Restructuring: A Step-by-Step Recipe.
This paper describes how a new elementary school used technology as the catalyst for school restructuring. First, the principal studied 36 schools that had been identified as successful change sites. She conducted interviews with and surveyed the teachers and principals, focusing on how the principal made a difference in facilitating school restructuring. The paper outlines the school's steps in the change process: recognize readiness and agree to proceed; form core planning committees; review the research and professional literature; review successful practice; involve everyone in the planning process; write the plan; implement the plan; and keep it going. The paper outlines the school's technology proficiencies required of students at each grade level, how technology was integrated into the curriculum, the ways in which technology was applied in the classrooms, and the roadblocks encountered and solutions developed. One figure is included. (Contains 52 references.) (LMI)
