There are a lot of easy-to-use online tools that can help teachers and administrators with the tough tasks involved in running efficient, responsive, and intentional programs. The efficiencies offered through these systems allow busy educators to spend less time managing information and more time doing the work that matters the most--working with staff, families, and children. Online systems help teachers and administrators serve families better, faster, and more efficiently, dig deeply into children's learning, and plan and report based on this information. As easy as it is to find technology solutions to administrative problems, identifying one's program's needs can take time and step by step planning, but it can be as simple as 1-2-3-4. These four steps, which are discussed in this article, are the following: (1) Identify and prioritize the program's administrative technology needs; (2) Start shopping; (3) Evaluate the products; and (4) Make a selection.
