Abstract

Technology is advancing rapidly. Increasingly it is becoming an integral part
of the school curriculum. Over the past decade, school districts have spent billions of dollars
on classroom technology, yet the classroom has changed little. Many factors have been
attributed to the problem. However, a primary one is the lack of effective technology planning
at the campus and district level. This paper describes how students in a graduate Educational
Technology class are discovering some answers and taking them back to their schools or
school districts. Technology planning can provide assistance and guidance for these teachers
wishing to incorporate technology into their schools.
