  • Link technology to physical activity and the arts – it is not just about language arts – integrate, integrate, integrate!  (High Tech High examples)
  • Start at Grades 4–7 (maybe 6-8 if a middle model) – spill both ways over time – the “sweet spot” extends from 4 – 10 depending on your school organization
