Scaling Technology and Infrastructure to Support the Common Core

Mike Casey will be presenting Scaling Technology and Infrastructure to Support the Common Core This Tuesday, May 13, 2:30 – 4:00pm.

Technology is more than purchasing the latest device; the infrastructure must be in place to support teaching and learning. Topics include:

  • Assess your site’s technology readiness. Does your site have the infrastructure, capacity, and commitment to support your technology?
  • Examine all costs associated with use, implementation, and scaling. Will you be able to sustain your purchase over time?
  • Plan for more than online testing. Is there a clear plan for effectively using technology for teaching and learning?
  • Plan and prepare for growth. Will your technology adapt to your changing needs?
