Technology funding for schools by David G Bauer( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using computers and getting "wired" have become priorities for educators and parents. But most schools lack the funds to fulfill their technological dreams. And many schools make the mistake of framing their proposals as equipment requests rather than showing how technology can facilitate better educational outcomes for students. This practical book-and-disk kit shows how to develop more effective technology funding proposals. It helps schools to identify the issues that can be resolved more efficiently through technology and then details how to effectively articulate what they need, why they need it, how they will use it, and who will benefit from the technological enhancements."--Jacket

The fourth chapter offers suggestions for organizing a successful fund-raising campaign, such as conducting a cost analysis and developing an organizational spreadsheet.
