This conference focused on the effective use of technology in schools by examining the following issues: (1) What value-added does technology bring to schools? (2) What does it take at the system level to enable learners, teachers, administrators, and communities to use technology effectively? (3) What assessment strategies and designs are currently being used to capture the value-added technology brings to schools? and (4) How do schools need to evolve in order to become a high-tech, high-performance enterprise that builds the capacity of learners, teachers, administrators, and community members to use the emerging technologies wisely and effectively?
