Technology Plans

What should be the key elements of a technology plan:

- an ongoing plan developed by a committee of teachers, students, parents, and community leaders to help implement technology in the classroom
- The plan is monitored to make sure that the curriculum goals of technology are met and goals are put in place for the future
- It is not a one size fits all type of plan that is the same for every school and schools district.
- it is open to new improvements and changes due to the fact that technology is rapidly changing
- technology is accessible to everyone in all subject areas and based on student centered learning
- special provisions made for special needs students
- it is a collaborative process which will be continually evaluated and revised
- it will have more than one technical person to help in problems and upgrading systems to keep up with changes
- it should support strategies for professional development
