  • plan and roadmap that a district will use to guide them in meeting the needs, goals, and recommendations of a school district’s Strategic Plan.
  • shows off not what but how technology is going to be used in a district

Planning Process

  • Step 1: Review and discuss the district Strategic Plan and once again ask the question, “How do we want to respond to these goals and meet the needs of our students?”
  • Step 2: Review and discuss the findings in the District Snapshot. Make a list of everything that someone says is great about the district and everything that has been identified as needing improvement.
  • Step 3: Identify each key member of the district and assign them a task based on their areas of expertise and if possible, partner them up with another member of the district to collaborate on future tasks in this process.
  • Step 4: Assign groups and committees to compose the remaining steps of the process.
  • Step 5: Create an Outline of what the district would like to see in the final Educational Technology Integration Plan.
  • Step 6: Set short-term and long-term goals for planning, communicating, and create a meeting calendar to assist in project management.
