It is very important for a school to have a technology plan. Everyone will view this fact in very different ways. Watch this video about the Importance of Having a Technology Plan presented by Frank Klein. This will lay the foundation for what we have to come.
Another video also presented by J. Klein that we want you to watch is 5 Reasons An Education Gap Still Exists. In this video Mr. Klein talks about his views of there being certain issues, such as Location and Socio-Economics that contribute to the education gap that he believes still exists. What we particularly found interesting was his view that the intention on the local level is what will bring about the change that he thinks that the education system needs. He believes, and we concur, that we have to work together to make this change evident. Of course, at the local level we are looking at all the stakeholders of the school. Parents must be involved in their child's education as we strive to make the students ready for the 21st century.
This is our technology plan over a three year period for our school Visionary High School. Please note that not all possible technology plans could have been employed, however, we have used what was appropriate.
Please click the link below that will show a slideshare that outlines our technology plan. Then watch the summary of our technology plan that follows.
