Technology Integration Models
Technology is critical to the District’s goals because of its capacity to support student achievement and transform the traditional classroom. When used appropriately, classroom technology can provide students and teachers with tools for dynamic exploration and representation of data and information, experimentation, problem solving, social and global awareness, independence, effective communication and collaboration, confidence, and a positive orientation to the future. However, District administrators and decision makers must make concerted efforts to remember that technology is merely a means to enhance the education of students rather than an end in itself. Technology must be part of a multi‐faceted curriculum that allows students and teachers to carry out the process of education in a powerful and effective manner.
