Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In the last few years since the introduction of the personal computer, it has seemed to the staff and students in the Harris-Lake Park School District that computer technology in the schools in northwest Iowa has been increasing at a tremendous rate. Many school districts in the area seemed to be trying to purchase as much hardware and software as they could afford in order to maintain a progressive image with their community and the other districts. The Harris-Lake Park Technology Committee was formed not to justify the acquisition of technology, since there seemed to be an obvious need to acquaint the students to equipment and methods with which they will need to be familiar, but in the practical utilization of the technology. They also wanted to coordinate purchases of equipment to maximize the benefit to the district. Committee members took a long, hard look at the current technology and technology implementation and what the future might bring to the school district.
