From the Chalkboard to the Chatroom...and How To Get There from Here: A Model for Developing and Using a Diocesan and School Site Educational Technology Plan.
Stuckey, Marian
This workbook documents the implementation of a technology plan for the 34 Catholic schools in the Diocese of San Jose (California) during 1994-97. Chapter 1 summarizes the following six steps in the technology planning process: (1) determining the current status and gathering information; (2) getting organized; (3) establishing direction and writing goals; (4) building the plan with strategies; (5) making the plan a reality; and (6) evaluating and adjusting the plan. The Diocese of San Jose's Masterplan is presented in the next chapter, including mission statement, goals and strategies recommended by the planning committees, and charts identifying the groups (i.e., Department of Education of the Diocese, principals, teachers, and technology taskforce) responsible for completing these strategies. Chapter 3 reports the work done by the taskforce for each of the goals and strategies. Several items developed by the planning committees are contained in this chapter, including a technology planning guide, a hardware evaluation form, a list of resources for teachers, minimum technology standards for hardware, Internet access options, teacher competency goals, student competencies by grade level, technology rules and code of ethics, and a technology use agreement. Chapter 4 describes the principals' role in the planning process. The advantages of diocesan-wide planning are considered in Chapter 5. Two appendices list the goals and strategies directed toward the Department of Education and teachers. (MES)
