Creating a Technology Plan. A Step by Step Guide and Workbook for Adult Literacy Providers.
Cort, Maureen; Disario, Nancy
Designed to help literacy providers establish a plan for the use of technology within their organization, this practical guide and workbook consists of hands-on worksheets. It offers points to reflect on and consider when assistance is needed to create a technology plan within an adult literacy setting. The workbook focuses on computer-based technologies but includes in the appendix applications of other multimedia systems and technologies for literacy. The guide consists of seven steps that can be used to establish a technology plan in an adult literacy setting. Following each section, worksheets are included for the administrator to evaluate the information presented. The seven sections cover these steps: (1) a vision of technology; (2) environmental scan; (3) evaluation of technologies (software and hardware); (4) budget; (5) staff development; (6) timeline and implementation; and (7) an ongoing evaluation. Appendixes include listing and applications of other multimedia systems and technologies for literacy; a comparison of integrated learning systems and curricular systems; sample plan for the use of technology within an organization; and 16 references.
