Technology Plan 2


"Technology is transforming society, and schools do not have a choice as to whether they will incorporate technology but rather how well they use it to enhance learning" (North Central Regional Educational Laboratory & Illinois State Board of Education, 1995). How will school districts accommodate the growing demand of integrating technology with education for the 21st century learner?
