Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kim Carter
The introduction to Technology Planning states, "Technology planning today is somewhat akin to navigating through a dense forest or swamp. It is important to pick out a destination and steer towards that point; however, the route will be continually interrupted by large immobile trees and dense brush. If you continue to keep your focus, you will arrive at your destination." Not only will this book in Linworth's Professional Growth series help you find and maintain your focus, but it will provide the equivalent of an orienteering map for technology: numerous large immobile trees, dense brush, swamps, and special landmarks from the dense forests of school technology implementation are identified and detailed. The clear focus in this succinct, comprehensive planning manual is on the instructional process and how "technology can transform the way in which teachers and students perform their roles." Technology goals that focus on access and process are highlighted as the means to address future and present school needs. Concise stages of technology planning and implementation are articulated with guidelines for addressing each. Perhaps the two most valuable planning chapters contain questions to consider within each area of development, and a compendium of invaluable wisdom and insight clearly derived from firsthand experience. The Appendices provide additional rich resource material: the author's district Technology Vision and Action Plan provide superb models of how to identify and define goals and subsequently develop an implementation strategy; four selected articles from Linworth's own magazines The Book Report and Technology Connection address the ins and outs of media retrieval systems, planning for CD-ROM purchases, and integrating technology; and a glossary defines many of the newer acronyms, applications, and other technology terms one might encounter. An excellent resource! Glossary. Biblio.
