E.g. How does your school “sit” when it comes to the availability of technological tools, training, and resources? What type of investment has your school made into having the personnel to facilitate and promote the use of technology? What does your school do to promote the integration of technology into student learning? How does your school use technology in the management of school operations?
After doing some reading and hearing your colleagues and classmates discuss what is happening at their sites, where do you think your school and district stands in the grand scheme of technological integration when compared to others (think about administratively, infrastructure, technology use, and availability of tools).
After doing some research and considering what you’ve experienced, where do you believe your district needs “to go” to prepare students for the “world?” e.g. college or careers.
What would be your ideal vision of the future role that technology will play in the field of education? This vision should encompass infrastructure, technological tools, and the administrative and instructional use of technology. It should be noted that this vision may be somewhat “futuristic or idealistic;” however, it should be realistic as well. Please follow these instructions thoroughly and attachment also.
