Technology's Impact on Learning (http://www.nsba.org/sbot/toolkit/tiol.html)

Plugging In. (http://www.ncrel.org/sdrs/edtalk/toc.htm)

This classic report describes the factors involved in Engaged Learning. The measurement tool for this is the Learning with Profile Tool (http://www.ncrtec.org/capacity/profile/profile.htm) which provides a good way to assess and gather this information.

The Report on The Effectiveness of Technology in Schools, '90-'97 is available from the Software Publishers Association (http://www.spa.org/publications/catalog/pg10.htm). Copies are free to SPA members and $30 for educators. Check with your hardware or software vendors, who are probably SPA members. This report cites all of the relevant research in the 90's.

School Technology and Readiness Report: From Pillars to Progress, published by the CEO Forum (http://www.ceoforum.org) in 1997 provides one of the best guides to looking at your technology. Includes the STAR Chart. You can download a copy of the report or take the assessment online.

Achieving Educational Equity with Advanced Technology (http://www.ibm.com/IBM/publicaffairs/education/index.html) is a report from IBM. You can download it or read it online. Thought-provoking.
