The document is structured around seven primary topics, each of which constitutes a chapter: technology planning and policies; finance; equipment and infrastructure; technology applications (software and systems); maintenance and support; professional development and training; and technology integration. The document also includes an extensive glossary of education technology terms and definitions.
