Tennessee Educational Technology Plan. 2003-2006. For Implementing the Enhancing Education Through Technology Provisions of the No Child Left Behind Plan Act of 2001.
Tennessee State Department of Education
This Strategic Educational Technology Plan for the State of Tennessee responds directly to the U. S. Department of Education's (USDoE) rule that state applications for Title II Part D funding under the No Child Left Behind Act must have statewide long-range strategic technology plans for K-12 education. Guidance from the USDoE Office of Technology requires the technology plan to address fifteen specific elements. These elements structure the outline for Tennessee's current plan. To prepare the plan, the Tennessee Department of Education comprehensively reviewed the status of educational technology in Tennessee. The Tennessee State Board of Education's goals for technology generally align with those in Title II Part D, Enhancing Education through Technology (EdTech). Universal access to the Internet is a reality in Tennessee schools. A new annual statewide school technology survey collects key information useful for baseline information and strategic planning. The purpose of this document, is to analyze the current situation, delineate the vision as it has evolved through recent endeavors, and outline how Tennessee can, within the current resources available, accomplish the noble goal of enhancing education through technology.
