Collaborate and share ideas on improving our state and district technology plans. With the approval of the new minimum standards, and the need for a new state educational technology plan, the guidelines for development of our NH District Technology Plans also need to be revisited. For over a year, a team of NH educators worked on three distinct elements of upgrade: the technology plan evaluation process, the technology plan framework and rubric, and the minimum standards update for ICT literacy. This workshop will be an open forum for discussions regarding technology the development of district technology plans, and the collection of statewide technology data, through the annual technology survey. We will discuss ways and processes that the Office of Educational Technology can use to better serve your needs and help you to connect your tech planning to the NH ICT Literacy Standards, the National Educational Technology Plan, and the NH College and Career Ready Standards. Finally, we will discuss the needs of district technology committees in terms of support and resources for the development and implementation of next generation technology plans. Together, we can build a coherent picture of technology in our state. You are encouraged to bring a laptop with wireless connectivity to access online resources, but it is not a requirement for participation.
