       Preface

       The document, A Journey (1997), first introduced the general concept of integrating
       technology into the curriculum at the elementary level in Prince Edward Island. As stated
       in this earlier document, using information technology in the schools was considered “ new
       and largely uncharted territory. We are beginning a journey into an interesting world of
       communication and information tools for teaching and learning.” With the current document,
       Journey On, we continue in our travels. It is recognized that technology evolves at a rapid
       pace, and that this present document will also need constant revision and updating to reflect
       technological changes, as well as our increasing level of knowledge and expertise in using
       technology within the educational system.
