Progress Report on the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010. A Report to the 76th Texas Legislature from the Texas Education Agency.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
The updated technology plan for the state of Texas makes requests of the Texas Legislature; states actions to be taken by the Texas Education Agency; and makes recommendations to other entities including other state agencies, regional education service centers, local school districts, institutions of higher education, communities and the private sector. The plan outlines short-term (1996-1998), mid-term (1999-2002), and long-term (2003-2010) initiatives and recommendations. This progress report details the accomplishments and progress made from September 1996 through August 1998. Working together, the various projects and initiatives described in this report meet the recommendations outlined in the Long-Range Plan. This report is organized in sections that reflect the four areas of the plan: Teaching and Learning; Educator Preparation and Development; Administration and Support Services; and Infrastructure for Technology. There are two other sections in the report: Education Service Centers; and Funding Opportunities. Each section includes an Executive Summary that summarizes progress in that particular area of the plan. A section of Appendices contains a glossary; a table listing the 1997 and 1998 Technology Integration in Education (TIE) Grant Awards; listing of districts enrolled in the Texas Library Connection (TLC); and a table showing the current status of technology initiatives. A timeline of events and accomplishments (September 1983 through August 1996) is also provided, at the beginning of the report. (AEF)
