We must provide a vision statement in order to explain the broad goals of our Technology Use Plan.
Suggested Vision Statement:
Technology is increasingly salient in the lives of humans around the world. In concert with its educational commitment to preparing students to be effective members of the global community, The College of Charleston will provide meaningful access to technology, both inside and outside the curricular context.
Participation in educational technology-related professional organizations should be strongly encouraged.
Participating in these organizations will provide members of the campus community with important resources as well as the opportunity to develop research and presentation material.
Professional organizations also foster a strong sense of collaboration and communication. This is important in helping determine “what works” in dealing with established and emerging technologies in the educational environment.
