Introducing Change in Technology


Being given the opportunity to change the direction we take with the technology we use in the classroom has come with it the opportunity to evaluate how we used technology in the past and how we can better use it in the future. As with all change, it is important to consider collaboratively why we are changing and to outline the vision of what we want to achieve.

After having a mix of iPads and laptops in the school, we are replacing all the laptops with iPads based on the action research of a group of teachers. This is my attempt at giving form to how we implement new technology devices:

Junior School iPad Program.

The purpose of this document is that it is brief, but at the same time, captures the rationale for what we are trying to do. I also want to ensure it could be applied to any change of technology we happen to go through. Do you have any feedback for me? Please comment.
