Technology Planning and Implementation in Public Schools: A Five-State Comparison.
Brush, Thomas
The purpose of this study was to examine the differences in technology planning and implementation among schools in the southeastern United States. School administrators (294) from five southeastern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee) were surveyed to determine technology planning procedures they had completed, whether they had technology leaders employed in their district, and technology they were planning to implement. Results of the study indicated (1) wide differences in technology leadership positions available in schools and in technology currently implemented in schools among the five states surveyed and (2) that support and resources, particularly at the state level, can have a huge impact on the availability of technical resources in these schools. Without this support, schools located in states with less progressive leadership will continue to have inadequate resources available for their students, which in turn will significantly diminish the competitiveness of these students in the 21st century marketplace.
