> Dear (State Technology Director):
>
> The Department of Education has recently awarded a grant to Dr. Ronald
> Anderson at the University of Minnesota to conduct research on the role of
> technology in school reform.
> Twelve case studies will be undertaken of schools that are engaged in
> exemplary reform efforts to enable all students to learn to high
> standards.  Sites will be selected at which technology plays a central
> role in supporting such efforts.
>
> The study will yield in depth descriptions both of the nature of the
> reforms being implemented at these sites and of the role played by
> technology.  It will enable other schools throughout the United States who
> are interested in adopting such reforms to understand what is entailed.
> In addition, the data collected will contribute to two major international
> studies of technology and educational reform, one being undertaken by the
> Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the other by the
> International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement.
> Over 30 countries are participating in these studies.
>
> We would appreciate your help in nominating schools within your state for
> participation  in this study.  The schools should meet the following
> criteria:
>
> *     They should be public schools at the k-12 level (primary,
> elementary, middle or secondary)
>
> *     They should be engaged in a school-wide reform effort to provide
> instruction that meets high content area standards.  Such instruction
> should be provided to all students in all core content areas.
>
> *     Technology should play a central role in supporting the reform
> effort, which includes innovative pedagogical practices.  It is expected
> that a majority of teachers are using technology in activities supporting
> the reform effort.
>
> *     The population enrolled at the school should include a number of
> students from low income families.
>
> *     Compelling evidence should be available indicating that the reform
> effort undertaken to-date at that school has resulted in educationally
> significant gains in achievement for the students involved, especially
> those from groups who do not traditionally achieve at high levels; and
>
> *     The reform should be sustainable.  That is, it should not appear to
> depend on idiosyncratic factors, such as a charismatic leader, that would
> inhibit transfer to other sites.
>
> Please send your nominations of schools directly to Dr. Sara Dexter,
> Project Co-Director.  Also, please feel free to contact her or Dr.
> Anderson if you have questions about the study.
