Schools as Technology Centers

The staff at my friend's school barely knows how to use Word. They lose documents, and things are out of date.


If every school followed a simple technology road map, they would be like companies that have computers and project plans, documentation, processes, user's guides, and training. When the administration and staff keeps up, teachers and students would have a solid base on which to grow. Parents and other community members would look to the school as a beacon of advanced technology.


Schools start by getting an "Administrative (open-source or commercial) Wiki," where invited stakeholders participate and update information relevant to their role. For example, a lab teacher enters information about the lab-once, or a secretary updates the Staff Directory-once.


Keeping things in an Administrative Wiki centralizes all of the information in a school and enables teachers, students, and all to use technology from a firm platform.
