Each section of this publication describes ways in which technology can be a partner to support student achievement and prepare young people with skills they will need to succeed in the workplace. For easy reference, a contents page precedes each section, highlighting key topics of interest to business leaders and educators. Wherever possible, website addresses are provided for these programs.
