Managing Technology Resourcefully: Part I--Technology and Instruction
Weeks, Richard
School Business Affairs, v75 n2 p24-27 Feb 2009
The transformative powers of digital technology to improve student learning and the resulting effect of that technology to make the business of education more cost-effective are two of the more exciting dynamics in schooling today. Before the current school year ends, new products and upgrades will be available to replace much of the technology. In the past few years, the Internet has created the biggest generation gap between educators and their students since the birth of rock and roll in the 1950s. Despite this newness, the task of "managing" modern technology is about two generations old. School superintendents, school business administrators, and others are responsible for overseeing considerable technology resources. For school business officials, the importance is underscored in ASBO International's Professional Standards, which identify information management as one of seven major skill sets in the profession. This article, the first of two articles on managing technology, looks at instructional technology.
