Technology Planning Meetings

stop-signDuring the past month, we’ve had several rounds of technology planning meetings – each focusing on how we can provide more resources directly into the hands of students.  Although our school district has no current plan to provide a device for all students (known as 1:1), we are looking at how we can make changes to our current expenditures to provide more resources directly to students.
 
Much of the discussion was about the elimination or changing of existing resources –  hence, the picture of the stop sign, a we are talking about what things we can stop doing in order to afford desired changes.  Among the discussions:  elimination of Microsoft SharePoint, moving from Microsoft Exchange to Google for email, and moving to on-line storage through Google Drive. 
 
The feedback from the meetings is being reviewed now and within the next week we’ll be publishing the list of upcoming changes for technology services.
