Discussion: Technology and Education
How can we make sure technology is used productively in education?
Minnesota school districts have made headlines with major classroom technology purchases. (In fact, the Saint Paul school board has a major vote on district-wide iPads scheduled for this evening.) Teachers have found many great ways to use technology to engage and help students, but classroom technology can also end up mostly unused if teachers are left unsupported.
What technology challenges or successes has your school seen?
What advice would you give district and state decision-makers about the best ways to support technology in the classroom?
