Technology in Massachusetts Schools. An Annual Report Based on Data Submitted by Districts
Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
The "Local Technology Plan Guidelines" serve as the basis for the Department's annual technology data collection. This report takes a look at the data submitted by 344 school districts, examining the progress Massachusetts school districts are making in meeting the recommended guidelines. In doing so, it will gauge the degree to which local schools are ready to use technology to enhance teaching and learning. District leaders can use this information, along with their local technology data, to help identify areas where they are falling behind and where the infusion of technology stimulus funds is likely to have the greatest impact. Because the report focuses on districts' technology readiness relative to the "Local Technology Plan Guidelines", its organization follows the five areas covered by the guidelines: (1) Clear Vision and Implementation Strategies; (2) Technology Integration and Literacy; (3) Technology Professional Development; (4) Accessibility of Technology; and (5) E-Learning and Communications. Local Technology Plan Guidelines is appended. (Contains 25 footnotes.)
