  30. 30. Conclusions<br />In any area of learning and growth, whether it be how fast we can run a mile or how complex a math problem we can solve, we need a method to chart our progress. This method must let us know where we are on our journey and point us towards our next goal.<br />For technology development and technical literacy our method is the STaR Chart . Using this survey in conjunction with the technology TEKS and the technology application standard for teachers is the best way for us to integrate technology into our curriculum and improve the technical abilities of our teachers.<br />
