Technology in Massachusetts Schools
Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education shares the Governor's concern about the need to prepare students for the 21st century economy. Technology has the power to enhance students' learning, engage them, and ultimately prepare them for the competitive world beyond school. In order to prepare students for their future in this increasingly digital world, it is critical that districts provide a robust technology infrastructure, ample support for the use of technology, and increased professional development for teachers. This report uses data submitted by districts to gauge Massachusetts' progress as a state in providing the prerequisites for 21st century learning. Individual districts may want to use the report's finding to judge their own progress. Policymakers can use the information to develop strategies to support local districts as they prepare students for their future. Appendices include: (1) Local Technology Plan Guidelines; (2) District Statistics; and (3) Technology Funding. (Contains 55 footnotes.)
