After meeting today with our Superintendent, Dr. Jim McCormick, concerning our desire to become a successful School of Technology, I came back to my room only to notice several interesting headlines, both on line and on paper. Someone (thank you!) had tucked today’s issue of The News and Observer into my mailbox earlier. The headline? “After landing PC maker Lenovo, N.C. chases more China deals“. And below the crease? “NCSU pulls plug on pay-per-lecture” The world is filled with new challenges and new decisions concerning technology use and understanding! So how do the kids feel about it? As I caught up on some of my favorite blogs, I read a recent post by David Warlick (2 cents worth) concerning a study addressing just that! We know what teachers desire (tools and support to integrate technology successfully!), we know what politicians want (test scores that prove technology works!), and we know what the corporate world wants (tech savvy employees who can make crucial, data-driven decisions quickly!). But what about the kids? What is their interest in technology? The crucial ingredient, find out here!
