Technology 101: Welcome

About this Daily Classroom Special
Technology 101 provides pointers, strategies and suggestions for helping your school design a technology plan that meets the needs of members of your learning community. Technology 101 was written by Peggy Wyns-Madison, a former Teachers Network web mentor.

Welcome

In recent years, more and more funding opportunities have become available for schools, districts, and school systems to utilize technology in classrooms across the country. For schools to take advantage of these opportunities, they need to plan for the future to maximize the use of technology so that it becomes an invisible tool in every curriculum area - English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and applied learning.

If you are classroom teacher, a.k.a. techie, administrator, or a concerned parent who wants to further the use of technology in the school building, then visit TeachNet each week for pointers on creating a technology plan. I will bring you strategies and suggestions for helping your school design a technology plan that meets the needs of members of your learning community. Some of the information for this workshop is an adaptation of the Quebec English Schools Network's Using Technology for Learning: A Planning Guide and from IMPACT II's Teacher Policy Institute. Dr. James A. Mecklenburger's helpful hints on "The Good and Bad of District Planning for Technology" will be included.

Here's our workshop agenda:

  One: Getting Your Stakeholders  

  Two: Rate Your Site  

  Three: Create a Vision  

  Four: Set Goals and Objectives  

  Five: Build an Implementation Plan  

  Six: Build Partnerships—Expanding the Community Circle
