Chalk Talk: Districts' Technology Budgets
It is time for school district to make better decisions about their education technology purchases. They can start by making those decisions based on student needs, not on what other schools have and what technology sales representatives tell them they should have. Sure, spending enough money to provide every single student with a laptop or tablet will impress lots of parents and people from other school districts; however, providing students with that many technological devices does not accurately reflect what is going on in today’s classes. Yes, students use computers, but they spend most of their time at their desks taking part in teachers’ lessons, reading books, or working with pen and paper. If that is the case, why spend millions of dollars on devices that are going to collect dust? That money could go to rebuilding infrastructure, improving lunches, and field trips.
