Abstract

This paper is a report combines the findings of a study conducted on how, three North Carolina school districts created a representative consortium of rural schools to construct methods to identify when and how technology impacts school reform and the changes necessary if technology is to impact education reform efforts. The Technology Activity Gage or TAG instrument is being piloted to identify how technology is used in schools. The TAG instrument can be used in a similar fashion as thee CEO Forum's 1997 School Technology and Readiness (StaR) Chart. This approach incorporates prior research on technology implementation conducted on the Rural Technology Challenge Partnership, with emphasized professional growth of teachers, students exposure and development of technology skills, and accountability to all involved.
