Technology planning: A roadmap to successful technology integration in schools

Gulbahar, Y.
The author presents findings from a study that examined the technology planning process in a private K–12 school to investigate why, despite extensive investments in technology, schools are not always successful in the integration of technology. Teachers (n=105) and administrators (n=25) completed questionnaires about their computer abilities. Students (n=376) completed questionnaires about their thoughts on the usage of technology in the school. Results indicated that teachers and administrators felt competent in computer usage, but did not feel they had sufficient guidelines for technology integration; students expressed a lack of utilization of technology in their classes. This information points to the need for a school technology plan.
