Managing Technology in schools

1. Locate the following information:

a. What is the “Student Per Modern Computer Ratio” for your district? For your school?

b. What is the average age (by percentage) of all instructional computers in your district? In your school?

c. What is the percentage of classrooms in your school district with access to the high-speed internet? What is the percentage in your school?

2. Using the information above and what you know from personal observation, discuss the status of technology in your school. What technology supports seem to be working well? What kinds of technology barriers should be addressed to support regular or special education classroom instruction, day-to-day communication, or other areas?
