When students, teachers, administrators and others employed in education arrive at work every day on thousands of campuses across the nation, it should come as no surprise that at every step along the way, technology is there to greet them. Technological advancements in education, as well as in facilities operation and management, are not a panacea. New technology can be frustrating and counterproductive when it is used improperly or when workers are not trained adequately. The tools that are designed to improve the performance of students and workers are only as effective as the people using them. However, when effectively integrated into a school or university, technology can help create a better learning environment supported by a more efficient and effective support staff. This article discusses the push for technological advancements in education and the benefits of using technology in improving school and university operations.
