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 They lose documents, and things are out of date.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 ...more »

Smart demand creates its own supply, and new jobs

The Grand Challenge now is also a competitive race. Creating new jobs requires creating new demand. That's Say's Law. In a Stalemate in Technology, with supply side stagnation, the Digital Promis is creating a demand pull of "smart demand that drives private sec- tor investment in innovation" (ed.gov/news 9/16/2011). The Race is on, 2010/11. Let Republican lawmakers now do what Democratic lawmakers did in 1986: "out- ...more »

Flip the Science Lab

Vast quantities of time and money are spent on traditional science labs. Too often, they don't really help students to understand science. Sometimes, they're simply dull. Too little time is spent discussing what happened with the lab investigations because of multiple stresses on classroom time -- high-stakes test preparation, overloaded learning standards, and, yes, time spent in labs. With increasing access to the ...more »

Major Tech Companies Partner With Classrooms

I believe today's students are the greatest users of technology. They crave innovation and cannot get enough of the connections they make with the touch of their fingers. I think Major Tech Companies (Apple, Microsoft, IBM, HP, etc.) need to Thinktank, Brainstorm, and partner with classrooms all around the country. They need to put more of their products in the hand of students and teachers, in exchange for ideas to ...more »

ESPN for Education

The greatest power of cable television networks is that they aggregate large audiences for specific interests and provide consistent programming for those passions. ESPN for Sports, Food Network for cuisine and HGTV for home improvement & decorating. Yet we have no such television home for education. NBC does a nice job one week a year with Education Nation but it's talking heads and while informative, it's not entertaining. ...more »

The Challenge In rural and small schools, curriculum offerings may be limited by constraints such as staffing, space, and enrollments. As K–12 budgets continue to tighten, a growing number of school districts are looking at expanding "1 to 1 computing" or introducing "bring your own device" (BYOD) strategies as a way to expand mobile and digital learning—allowing for greater access to interactive digital curricula, electronic ...more »
