Technology Report: A Report on Technology in Iowa Public School Districts, 1997-98.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
The Iowa Department of Education collects fundamental information on Iowa public schools with respect to various aspects of technology, its implementation and usage. The Technology Survey for the 1997-98 school year was administered to all school districts (377 of 384 districts responded) to collect current baseline information on a central core of technology elements. The Department uses these trend data to describe the status of Iowa public school technology, to reflect needs, and to facilitate school improvement processes. In addition, data to respond to legislative and other requests about technology in Iowa public school districts are provided through this survey. Information is presented according to the following areas: computer hardware and technology, Internet uses and software, technology and instruction, automated and computerized records, and technology support and staff development. Where feasible the report compares information from the 1996-97 and 1997-98 school year technology surveys, as well as a 1995-96 school year technology survey cosponsored by the Iowa Department of Education and Iowa State University. The survey form is appended. (AEF)
