For Ohio to achieve the goals established by the Governor and the General Assembly in both higher education and K-12, we must have a technology infrastructure that provides educators and students full access to current technological supports as well as the innovations of the future. For example, existing technologies allow high schools students to assess their skills and prepare for college online, college students to develop lower-cost educational plans that will land them a career in a growth industry, and educators to access the latest, most effective curriculum without having to leave their classroom. As our educational systems continue to become more efficient and more data responsive, the ever closer relationships between K-12 and higher education will be reflected in the shared technology that connects students, teachers, administrators, faculty, and local technology organizations.
Components of Your Technology Plan
The plan involves reviewing strategic educational goals and objectives and determining the technology that is necessary to assist in reaching these goals and objectives. Technology use on a day-to-day basis encompasses more than just computers in the classroom.
