Denton, Jon; Davis, Trina; Strader, Arlen; Jessup, George
The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) with technical support from the South Central Regional Technology in Education Consortia-Texas (SCR*TEC-TX) conducted a survey of the technology infrastructure in all public schools in Texas. This document provides the final report of the 1998 Texas Public School Technology Survey. Following background information, data summaries are provided which address the following four research questions: (1) What changes have occurred in Texas school districts between 1996 and 1998 with respect to technology infrastructure financial support, staff development related to technology, current technology infrastructure, and use of technology infrastructure? (2) What type of professional development on technology is being provided across the Educational Service Centers (ESC) regions for teachers and technology coordinators? (3) What is the current status of telecommunications connectivity to school districts by ESC Region? and (4) How is technology being used in school districts (classified by type and size) by teachers and students? The report concludes that substantial technology infrastructure changes have occurred in Texas public schools over the past three years, and the extent and breadth of these changes speaks volumes about how state and federal funding are impacting schools. The survey instrument is appended. (AEF)
