This publication, intended for administrators and technology planning teams in a wide range of educational settings, presents a set of guiding questions for technology planning that is both supported by current research and found in exemplary technology plans. The guide will help technology planning teams to start and guide a technology planning process, develop planning criteria, refine technology planning processes, analyze technology planning models, and review technology plans developed by other school districts and organizations. The first section discusses the basic principle of technology planning and presents guidelines for using this guide. Guiding questions for technology planning that address the following areas are presented in the next section: (1) creating a vision of learning; (2) how technology will be used to support this vision; (3) developing a supportive infrastructure, including professional development, training, technical support, networking, hardware, software, and facilities; (4) understanding the content of the technology plan; (5) garnering public support; (6) implementing the technology plan; (7) and evaluating the implementation of the technology plan. A concluding section discusses important factors in the technology planning process.
