"The Long-Range Plan for Technology" was adopted by the Texas State Board of Education in November 1988. This progress report details accomplishments through August 1992 in the following categories: (1) hardware procurement and purchase; (2) courseware adoption and provision; (3) training and certification; (4) delivery systems; and (5) research and development. The technologies encompassed are computer-based systems, information storage and retrieval devices, telecommunications, and other electronic media. Priority uses are for classroom instruction, instructional management, distance learning, and communications. Enabling statutes for the long-range plan have been passed, and many implementation plans have been approved. An Advisory Committee on Technology Standards and the Texas Center for Educational Technology have been established, and the first electronic textbook was adopted in November 1990. Technology studies have been started at pilot project sites and the Texas Education Network is operating as an electronic transfer system. Phase 1, now completed, has set the stage for technology use in Texas education. Appendix A is an index to proposed actions, and Appendix B lists the current status of statewide technology initiatives. (SLD)
