State Technology Plan
The Arkansas Department of Education supports a broad, three-year plan to integrate educational technology into the standards of learning and the curricula of the public schools. The plan presents a vision for the use of technology in schools and classrooms, and it serves as a design for identifying the necessary components of a progressive technology program.
