Technology in the public schools…

This evening, I’ve been participating in a meeting of the Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Technology Advisory Committee meeting. Interesting discussions, and a “caucus” to work toward prioritizing what can be done with the resources available. This school system is the best-performing one in the state, and the parents are highly educated and affluent. However, it’s still challenging to get the resources needed to get the things needed to do the job. This evening we’ve discussed:

  • Providing teachers with a multi-media laptop
  • Creating a 21st century classroom (projectors, whiteboards, etc.)
  • Refresh student instructional computers
  • Provide 1:1 computing access for all students
  • Installing secure wireless access through all schools

A tough set of choices as all need to be done…
