The importance of technology

  1. 1.  Because technology continues to play an important role in modern industrial society, integrating technology into the schools will help prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing world (“Developing school or,” 1996).
  2. 2.  Without technology, our students will be left behind. Technology is the future! Before we incorporate technology, there are a few things we as future administrators must do:
  3. 3.  1. Assess the needs of our students. In order for us to provide the most effective tools on our campus, we must assess what our students need and what this technology will provide for them.
  4. 4.  2. Train our teachers and staff. I big downfall to teaching technology could be that the teachers themselves are not trained on current technology and how to incorporate it into their classrooms.
  5. 5.  3. Budget for the technology. Technology can become really expensive. Please see a few websites that I have posted on my blog for information on how to make a plan for your technology.
  6. 6.  4. Lastly, monitor the progress of technology. In order for technology to be effective, you must monitor its progress and how it is helping students.
