Report of the 2000 Texas Public School Technology Survey Prepared for the Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund Board and Texas Public Schools.
Denton, Jon; Davis, Trina; Strader, Arlen
Over the past three legislative sessions, the Texas State Legislature enacted laws that have accelerated the integration of technology into public education. Significant efforts to build technology infrastructure in Texas are evident through the thousands of public school awards provided by the Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund Board (TIF), the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund grants, and the E-Rate discounts. With such an influx of funding into technology education, the following question was posed to guide this Texas Public School Technology Survey for the year 2000: "What technology resources have been put in place in schools as a result of these awards?" The telecommunications infrastructure in public schools across Texas has changed significantly across the past 5 years, with over 96% of classrooms in Texas public schools having Internet access. Also, technology professional development activities for Texas classroom teachers have received additional support. Much still needs to be accomplished, because only 18% of the school districts surveyed indicated that their teachers use online resources in their instruction. (AEF)
