  • In order to build a strong 21 st century learning environment we must have campus and district collaborative and on-going planning that is aligned with the Texas long range plans for technology.
  • The six components of the infrastructure for technology are essential towards achieving the Texas long-range technology plans in creating a 21 st century learning environment for 21 st century learners.
  • According to the Texas Star chart data most educational institutes in Texas are at the developing technology stage. The Infrastructure key area’s star chart results demonstrate that in the state of Texas most educational institutes are at an advanced technology stage.
  • Overall, Hudson is at a developing technology stage which proves we have come a long way and can achieve much more if we work together to give our future leaders the opportunity to gain technology knowledge and skills that are essential in the workforce.
  • 21 st century learning requires students to learn different ways to work with tools, information, and people. In order to help students succeed in the workforce the education system must be revamped and integrate technology seamlessly through all subject areas. All stakeholders are responsible for our country’s future by creating competent future leaders.
