Bringing Tomorrow's Technology to You Today: School Board of Tomorrow Resource Guide.
National School Boards Association, Alexandria, VA.
The National School Boards Association (NSBA), the National School Boards Foundation, NSBA's Institute for the Transfer of Technology to Education, and Apple Computer, Inc., launched "The School Board of Tomorrow Exhibit" at NSBA's 1996 annual conference and exposition in Orlando, Florida. This handbook summarizes the communication technologies featured in the exhibit. The first part provides an overview of the five different environments simulated in the exhibit: a school board member's home office, the family education network (FEN), a superintendent's office, a school board meeting room, and a community forum. The second part of this guide contains five selected NSBA articles from "The Electronic School." The articles offer advice and information on hiring technical consultants for a school district, conducting successful bond campaigns, using e-mail to conduct school board business, and acquiring funding for technology. A list of technology providers is included. (LMI)
