We Speak Education
Common core state standards, 1:1 computing initiatives, online EOCs, formative assesments, Virtual Learning Environments, Student Management Systems, online grade books, curriculim development, lesson plans, PD, and more. We understand what these terms mean to you and we have experience planning and implementing technology in education, especially in a K-12 environment.
We also understand the budget constraints within which you operate and we will show you how to implement technology responsibly. In many cases, schools are spending far more than they should for what they get in return. When you are finally able to convince someone that money should be spent on education technology initiatives, the money is often spent poorly. The result is ineffective technology products in the school.
As one official with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction said in February of 2012,
"It was challenging for me to wrap my head around the concept of full online EOG testing for each public school within the next two years. I was principal of a charter school that enrolled over 900 students, and on a good day we had 50 dependable computers. I use that term loosely."
The consequences for getting your technology initiative wrong can be dire. Not only does it waste precious resources, it complicates teachers' lives and will turn off students to learning. If parents don't have confidence in your ability to appropriately implement technology in the school they will begin to question your ability to educate their children in all areas.
K-12 schools often find themselves at a disadvantage when implementing new technology. Schools are simply not geared towards understanding and implementing such a rapidly changing environment. We know it is so very important that you use your limited resources effectively and efficiently and we have the experience to get you on the right track and keep you there.
Best of all, we will show you how to get long term value from your investment using a language you will understand.
