Technology is powerful, and it has the potential to transform the classroom experience for students. This seems to be a self evident truth, but we must continue to advocate for student access to technology in order if we want to fully utilize it.
The better I can articulate how technology helps reach a concrete school goal, the more impact technology will have on the students. Above, I have identified these goals:
Harnessing the possibility of the digital age through 21st century reading.
Identifying assessment sites that can provide benchmarks, monitor growth, make meaning out of student data.
Seeking high-impact curriculum sites that help explain content and teach skills to students.
Mainstreaming creative digital platforms that make design for students easy
Mastering creative digital platforms that make design for teachers possible.
Providing structure and clarity through organization tools.
Fostering student expression electronically to map student learning.
Ingraining the use of effective studying tools into students’ studying habits.
