Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This review looks at the question, "What steps should be included in the technology planning process." Eight technology planning process models from state education departments, university education departments, and educational advisory agencies were reviewed and classified according to their process steps. Eight steps were identified in a majority of these plans as being necessary components to insure success in the technology planning process. Although not an actual step in the process, all the models reviewed stressed the need for technology to be integrated across the curriculum. Technology should not be taught in isolation, but rather should be taught as a part of all subject areas. In order to ensure technology is used to support teaching and learning it is necessary to engage in meaningful planning.
