Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010. A Report to the 75th Texas Legislature from the State Board of Education.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This document reports on the Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010 for the state of Texas. At the beginning of the report, is a list of the members of the Task Force on Technology and a schedule of meetings, followed by the Vision of Technology in Education, 2010. The next part of the report is "The Need to Update the '1988-2000 Long-Range Plan for Technology of the Texas State Board of Education.'" Although the plan's accomplishments are considerable, a number of factors compel a reexamination of its goals and recommendations. These factors include changes in each of the following areas, which are addressed separately: State Legislation; Federal Legislation; Developments in Technology; Business and Industry Expectations; Climate of Texas Schools; Higher Education; Community Needs; and Lessons Learned Since 1988. Next is the "Long-Range Plan for Technology, 1996-2010' Requests to the Texas Legislature, Actions, and Recommendations." The Requests, and the Actions by the Texas Education Agency and Recommendations are presented for each of four areas, delineated by time period (1997-1998, 1999-2002, and 2003-2010): Teaching and Learning; Educator Preparation and Development; Administration and Support Services; and Infrastructure for Technology. Each area includes an Executive Summary. An Appendix includes a history and timeline of events and accomplishments of the Long-Range Plan, and a chart of the Current Status of Technology Initiatives.
