This book provides educators with both the theoretical and the practical considerations for planning and implementing technology in schools. It is one of the very few books directed to educational leaders who realize the importance of a long-term vision and investment in technology. Emphasis is placed throughout on the importance of the total application as opposed to any individual component of technology planning. Staff development, facilities, and finances are treated with the same importance as hardware and software. It is meant to form a foundation from which educators will provide the leadership and become agents for realizing the powerful potential of technology in their schools.About the Author:
