During the follow up discussion regarding the Proposed Technology Plan 2012-2015, Board of Education member Jennifer Dayton posed a very searching and profound question: What can technology do to bring about an extraordinary rise in student achievement?
The response was minimal, but this question should form the basis for any investment in technology going forward.
Are we investing for the sake of making some investment? Or to have the "best stuff" in our schools? The bottom line is results. Are we raising student achievement significantly with our spending?
