Abstract:

This document describes the accomplishments of the Iowa Distance Education Alliance (idea). The Iowa Distance Education Alliance (idea) is a partnership involving educational institutions across Iowa that received funding from the federal Star Schools Program to demonstrate the use of the Iowa Communication Network's (icn) fiber optic technology for k-12 instruction. Iowa Public Television (iptv), the Iowa Department of Education, the state's 3 public universities, 15 community colleges, 15 area education agencies (AEAs), and many local school districts participated in the project over a 2-year period. The project focused on accomplishing six major goals: (1) coordinating the use of the icn; (2) informing Iowans about the icn; (3) preparing teachers to use the icn; (4) connecting schools to the icn; (5) improving instruction in five content areas through use of the icn; and (6) documenting the effectiveness of the icn. The first part of the report summarizes activities and evaluation findings related to the regional partnerships, Iowa's community colleges and AEAs working in collaboration with local school districts in each of the state's 15 regions. The second part summarizes the activities and evaluation findings related to the Teacher Education Alliance, which consists of the three state universities. Part 3 summarizes the activities and evaluation results related to the Communication and Resources Clearinghouse, which promotes communication between and among the Iowa Distance Education Alliance partners. The fourth section summarizes the 2-year accomplishments of the idea by the six project goals. The final section presents conclusions and recommendations resulting from the evaluation activities. Appendices contain a summary of regional coordinator reports, copies of the surveys used to collect data, and a list of research projects funded through Iowa's Star Schools Project. (Lmi).
