Planning for Technology: A Guide for School Administrators, Technology Coordinators, and Curriculum Leaders.
Whitehead, Bruce M.; Jensen, Devon F. N.; Boschee, Floyd
This book provides information and activities to help school administrators, technology coordinators, and curriculum developers to establish a school plan that supports in-class technology usage for students and teachers. Chapter 1 provides the context and rationale for the technology shift suggested in the book. Chapter 2 outlines how crucial administrative planning and leadership are to making this technology initiative a practical reality. Chapter 3 establishes a case for developing a strong technology professional development plan with all its supportive administrative features. Chapter 4 provides a practical framework for bringing computers into the classroom and issues that teachers, through administrative support, need to address in trying to develop a closer link between computers and the curriculum. Chapter 5 contains key processes, structures, reflective activities, and research necessary for administrators as they consider developing their own technology public relations plan. Chapter 6 helps administrators become aware of the financial options available to them. Chapter 7 addresses the key factors that school administrators must explore as they implement classroom-networked learning centers throughout their schools. Chapter 8 provides a structural model for developing an effective evaluation and assessment. Each chapter concludes with a series of reflective activities. Appendices include individual teacher and administrator technology profiles, a sample school district technology plan, national education technology standards and performance indicators, and a glossary. Contains name and subject indexes. (MES)
