Technology Report: A Report on Technology in Iowa Public School Districts.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
The technology data collection provides fundamental information on Iowa public schools with respect to various aspects of technology. Responses to the survey were received from 100% of the 379 Iowa public school districts during the 1996-97 school year. The survey was conducted to provide baseline information on a central core of technology elements to allow for the development of trend data. These data will enable the Department to describe the status of Iowa public school technology, to reflect needs, and to facilitate the school improvement processes. In addition, the survey will provide data to respond to legislative and other requests about technology in Iowa public school districts and will allow for comparisons of similar data with other states and the nation. The report arranges information by technology area: computer hardware/technology, Internet uses and software, instructional integrated technology, automated student record systems, and technology support and staff development. The report also presents and compares information collected from a 1995-96 school year technology survey. Appendices contain the technology survey form and selected survey data. Data elements include the number of in-school computers, the percent of computers purchased in the last two years, the number of pupils per computer, Internet access status, remote access to classes status, and automated student record status.
