Technology Report

The Maryland Technology Report
In 1995, the State of Maryland began implementation of the Maryland Plan for Technology in Education, a blueprint for effective utilization of technologies in schools statewide. The Plan was developed under the leadership of the Maryland Business Roundtable (MBRT) by key stakeholders throughout Maryland that represented not only the educational community but the public and private sectors as well. The Plan serves as the foundation for development and funding of educational technology programs on both the State and local levels.

In 1997, the U.S. Department of Education approved the Maryland Plan, but also made suggestions which prompted the State to reexamine the Plan in light of new data and national goals. The Plan was revised and presented to the Maryland State Board of Education in 1998 for adoption. In keeping pace with the rapid changes in technology and technology education, the Plan has undergone two other revisions, the latest being accepted by the Maryland State Board of Education on April 24, 2007.  Click on either of the links below to view this latest edition.
