(Massachusetts: Writing) Rationale "Learning environments aren't revolutionized by installing a few cool gadgets here and there. Far more important is the educator's role in employing today's technology to make material accessible and engaging -- in other words, encouraging students to CREATE, COMMUNICATE AND COLLABORATE in ways never before possible."- Mark Stevens, in the NEA Today journal “I know only one thing about the technologies that awaits us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with them.”
-- Jason Ohler "Students employ technology thoughtfully to enhance
their reading, writing, speaking, listening and language
use ... they are familiar with the strengths and
limitations of various technological tools and mediums
and can select and use those best suited to their
communication goals."
