Priority One: Make Sure Your Technology Works!

from Nichole Schweitzer
Principal of Wisconsin Connections Academy Technology is an important part of our educational platform in a virtual school, and it has to be a priority. You really need to know that your technology is sound, i.e. that every link is “clickable.†Although it can be time consuming, it is well worth the investment to make sure before school begins that the technology upon which your school depends is working. It saves time in the long run (no angry emails from frustrated parents and students) as well as prevents any ill-will and confusion that might result from students and parents trying to access Web sites that don’t work. At Wisconsin Connections Academy, our goal is to make sure that the technology is up and running at least one month before school starts, ensuring a smooth and productive start of the new school year.
