What's In, What's Out & An Analysis of State Educational Technology Plans

Abstract

This popular article (rated by TCRecord as its most popular article of 2001) analyzes visions behind state technology plans.



Abstract: "There are four important dimensions of educational technology: technology, students, teachers, and educational goals. How each of the aspects is viewed and presented in the technology plans influences decisions on hardware and software purchases, strategies for teacher professional development, formulation of teaching objectives, as well as development of learning opportunities for students. Our analysis concentrated on views of these dimensions, specifically on the views endorsed and ignored by the technology plans."
