Technology Planning Services
About the Service
The LHRIC is committed to helping school districts prepare effectively
for the future. Over the past two decades, the Regional Information
Center has pioneered the strategic long range technology planning process. We have worked closely with districts, their Boards of Education and communities to help implement meaningful and innovative uses
of educational technology.
Technology planning is a process that provides direction and assists
the educational community in understanding their current status and practices, and allows them to imagine where they want to be. The goal of planning is not just to produce a document, but to promote continuous action that creates and maintains a technology-rich environment. Throughout the planning process, districts are active participants in engaging and lively sessions where we demonstrate and discuss new and emerging technologies that will shape the course of learning.
Technology Audits and Evaluations
Our longstanding planning process has extended into district-wide evaluations of technology. We have worked with districts to perform audits and evaluations of instructional and administrative technology, as well as customized consulting engagements around specific focus points: leadership and human infrastructure, policies and governance, impact of professional development, new models of technical support, remote access, e-learning, and curriculum and instruction.
LHRIC Software and Digital Content Planning
As a follow up to our long range planning services, the LHRIC offers a unique planning process resulting in a 3-5 year software adoption plan that is tightly mapped to your school district’s educational objectives and key areas of focus.
The value of the planning process is that it provides a structured approach to the purchase of software for a building or an entire district. It models the approach that organizations have taken to build out their equipment infrastructure. The LHRIC’s Content Planning process is a proactive approach to adopting software that serves the entire school community and addresses the district’s key areas of focus. In addition, the plan also identifies the basic professional development that should accompany the software and digital content.
The Content Planning Process Involves:
Innovative and enjoyable hands on sessions for administrators and teachers
Identification of district instructional objectives and key areas of focus
Identification of district software that is presently being used effectively
Recommendations for core software categories or applications mapped to the district’s instructional objectives
Creation of a planning budget for acquiring the software over a 3-5 year period
Development of an elegant planning document that can be used as a blueprint to guide district software and digital content acquisitions.
