Oregon Educational Technology Plan.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The 1997 Oregon Technology Plan sets a course for Oregon and its Department of Education in using technology to improve student learning, manage resources, and increase accountability. It supports the integration of instructional and administrative technology to help achieve the goals of Oregon's school improvement plan. The Goals of the Technology Plan correspond directly to the four national technology goals intended to improve education by addressing issues of equipment, connectivity, instruction and professional development. After an overview of the Plan, each of the following goals is outlined in terms of progress and action plans: (1) All Oregon students and teachers will have access to appropriate technology including modern computers; (2) Every school and classroom in Oregon will be connected to the Internet; (3) Effective software and online learning resources will be an integral tool to support the school curriculum in Oregon; and (4) All Oregon K-12 teachers, administrators and staff will have the immediate and specific education and support they need to help students learn through technology including computers and the Internet. The remaining sections focus on: monitoring, evaluation, and reporting; oversight, staffing, and future directions; the budget; and guidance for Oregon local districts in preparing a technology plan. Three tables outline the phases of a model plan, and present a sample worksheet and sample table of contents for a district educational technology plan. Appendices include: (1) Oregon Senate Bill 994-Information Technology Policy; (2) Oregon Benchmarks; (3) ORS Chapter 329; (4) Oregon Common Curriculum Goals, Content Standards, and Performance Standards; (5) 1992 Technology Plan; (6) 1994 Goals Technology Plan; (7) Open System Description and Technology Sub-Committee Report; (8) OITC Description; (9) Action Plan in Technology/Distance Education; (10) Fast Packet Contract; (11) Implementation of Telecommunications Act in Oregon; (12) Innovative Engine Competition; and (13) TigerNet Model.
