More than Money Matters: Establishing Effective School-Corporate Partnerships
Flynn, Nancy
Learning & Leading with Technology, v35 n3 p18-21 Nov 2007
Given the financial constraints facing U.S. schools and the expense of cutting-edge technology, partnerships between schools and corporations that specialize in technology are becoming more vital in the quest to remain competitive in today's educational market. Schools can benefit from these partnerships by receiving the latest hardware and software, and corporations benefit from increased profits. To find out exactly what (besides money) matters when principals engage in technology partnerships with corporations, the author spoke with nine principals across the United States. The author found that principals commonly cited their needs for additional hardware, software, and training as criteria for entering into various partnerships. The author used these responses to generate 10 guidelines specifically for technology partnerships to help school administrators and other decision-makers think more critically about all aspects of school-corporate partnerships that involve technology. These 10 guidelines are discussed in this article.
