Top-down Technology

Don't ignore the administrators if you want to spark technology use. They will become its champions if given the proper coaching and guidance. And they will begin using technology for their own productivity and assessment.

  • At principal meetings be sure to ask them to share how technology is being used at their schools.
  • Provide each administrator with a laptop with all the software they will need.
  • Offer one-on-one coaching to help them create reports and presentations.
  • Show them how Web sites and specific software titles can support their student learning outcomes.

When administrators see what they can do with technology they will support the use of technology as part of the curriculum.
