Monday's Class - Technology Planning
The discussion today centered around how broad a technology plan should be. The tech directors tended to be concerned that tech plans are becoming too broad, focusing too much on what to do with the technology. Others seemed to believe that prof. dev., integration, and vision were essential parts of the plan. I feel very strongly that tech people and education people need to work more and more in concert to help each other. Tech people need to provide information about what technology is out there and where we are headed with tech tools. Educators need to be involved, providing information about what is being taught and what students need to be able to do. If we remove one group from this equation, the remaining plan is incomplete.
