Integrating Technology

In a Nutshell:

"It is no longer enough to focus on technology skills, as it is clear every day that most students have or are quick to acquire these basic skills. What still holds many Vermont schools back is the continuing separation of technology from the rest of the school curriculum. Technology must become the transparent component that is integrated seamlessly in all areas of the curriculum. As The Transformation of Education describes the vision: “Digital learning tools will largely replace textbooks and teacher lectures as the way students access new information. Technology links students to the world, with teachers as their guides and coaches as they explore and experience.”
