The Plugged-In School

The National Staff Development Council recently in its Learning System publication detailed a mythical “plugged-in” school in which districts harness technology to attract and retain new teachers.

This is worth your time to read this report and reflect on the possibilities. Folks like my friend, Dave Warlick, who is and has been both a prophet and evangelist for technology in schools, has seen this coming for some time.   Yet, most schools still find themselves with a tight lock on Internet access and lacking a focus on true technology integration. Technology in many schools is still something you “do,” rather than something that helps students learn.
