This issue of Learning Point offers highlights several schools and districts in which there is a shared energy around making processes of teaching and learning more efficient while understanding and applying technology where it can provide the most value added for student learning. Gratuitous technology or technology for the sake of technology and status is not part of the thinking or practice in such schools and districts. The cover story, Equity Impact: Expanding Technology's Potential to Support Student Learning (Asta Svedkauskaite) focuses on assistive technology--technologies that are available for use by children and adults challenged by physical and/or cognitive impairments; persons who are vision or hearing impaired; those confined to wheelchairs; those who have difficulty reading, speaking, or comprehending, who can be supported by developments in hardware, software, and processes that integrate those tools into the curriculum. The following articles are also included: (1) Choosing Technology Strategically to Impact Systemwide Achievement (Gil Valdez); (2) Target Your Grant Proposal for Success (Arlene Hough); (3) Developing Solutions to Meet Regional Needs (Sandy Moore, Comp.); (4) Predicting Progress: Partnership Forecasts Future of ISTE NETS (Nicole Gallmann); (5) Structuring a System to Empower All Learners (Nicole Gallmann); and (6) Solid Research and Development Lay Groundwork for Systemwide Solutions (Rebecca Phillips).
