Curriculum Administrator, June 1998, p. 64

Investments in school technology will be for naught if curriculum administrators don’t voice their concerns and advocate their positions, says Mickey Revenaugh, vice president for outreach and education at the Schools and Libraries Corp., the non-profit organization created to disburse E-rate funds.

Revenaugh recommends:

  1. curriculum leaders become comfortable with available technology.

  2. brainstorming the curricular implications of having classrooms connected to each other via computer networks.

  3. realizing your ultimate goal is improving student achievement—not showing off the latest technology.

  4. talking to peers to find out what has and hasn’t worked in their schools.
