Technology Plays a Key Role in Preparing Students for the World beyond Graduation. Best Practices Newsletter
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
Many teachers use the Internet and other electronic and web-based resources to engage students in meaningful assignments for independent learning, greater ownership of learning and better preparation for college and careers. The technology practices should align with the new college- and career-readiness standards (CCRS). They also should enhance knowledge of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields of study that give students a solid foundation for work and learning. School leaders and teachers are happy to share approaches that give students opportunities to complete challenging, hands-on projects and assignments via modern technology. Students will benefit now and in the future as they keep pace with rapidly changing education and workplace environments. This newsletter describes a number of approaches that have been proven successful. It provides best practices in implementing the High Schools that Work (HSTW), Making Middle Grades Work (MMGW) and Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) school improvement models based on presentations at the 27th Annual HSTW Staff Development Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina in summer 2013.
