A Progressive Approach to Integrating Education Technology
Nemcek, Felicia
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v88 n1 p32-35 Jan 2013
Do you ever have the feeling that with rapidly changing technology your students are driving the bus and you are holding on for dear life? According to the author, who is the principal of the Southwest Career and Technical Academy (SWCTA) located in Las Vegas, Nevada, they feel that way more often than not. However, she and her faculty understand that operating a 21st-century school will always be that way. From the day they opened the school in August 2009, they have embraced a progressive approach to integrating technology into all their classes. Looking back over the last three years, SWCTA has evolved with its students, and they have found success in their use of education technology. In this article, the author shares how their story unfolded. (Contains 2 figures.)
