Why Invest and Use Technology?

• Teachers can have better information to tailor instruction.
  Shorter assessments that zero in on student performance faster (think:
  accurately determine where a child is on a progression of learning).

• Classrooms will be richer and more engaging environments.
  Use of media in classroom experiences (think: first-hand historical accounts via
  video or online literary journals).

• Students can connect to the world.
  Students will be able to engage in learning experiences with experts and
  learners who are not in their class…or even their country.

• Digital learning offers new opportunities for individualization.
  Modular content can be provided based on need; progress can be easily
  monitored; small- and large-scale collaboration is easier (think: North
  Carolina’s development of an Instructional Improvement System).
