IT Projects Must Support the Institution’s Mission
"To give our children the chance to live out their dreams in a world that's never been more competitive, we will equip tens of thousands of schools, community colleges, and public universities with 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries,"-- President Obama, January 15, 2009

I would make schools more focused on
21st-century learning skills with engaging,
technology-rich and high-quality learning
environments. Education would be less focused on lower-level learning, but would use more project- and performance-based learning to measure student growth.
I would use tools such as distance
learning to teach students more relevant
material. Kids will be drawn into a course
by knowing they will use what they learn.
Then you can keep their attention by using
technology to talk to professionals around
