How does a school's technology vision impact student learning?

I read a blog in Tech & Learning titled, "5 Leadership Questions To Finish (And Start) The School Year With," (July 9, 2013) that made me wonder how the leadership in your school district views technology.  Do the school leaders develop technology plans that have a positive impact on student learning? 

 

Here are some questions discussed in the blog post:

1. To what extent do you compare and align your school technology plan with other plans such as your school improvement plan? 

2. To what extent do you promote participation of your school’s stakeholders in the technology planning process of your school or district?

3. To what extent did you disseminate or model best practices in learning and teaching with technology to faculty and staff?

4. To what extent do you include the effective use of technology as a criterion for assessing the performance of faculty?

5. To what extent do you participate in professional development activities meant to improve and expand your use of technology?


How do you plan to incorporate technology into your curriculum?  What help do you need from administrators to accomplish your goals using technology with your students?

    Tech & Learning featured a recent study supporting the idea that K-12 Education Leaders Enhance Learning Outcomes Through Personlization.  The data showed that "using technology to deliver personalized coursework is increasingly essential if K-12 education leaders--superintendents, principals and headmasters--are to maximize student learning outcomes. According to recent research, schools that have embraced personalized, technology-supported learning strategies--often described as '1-to-1' learning programs–are outperforming their counterparts."


    The study is available in the attached PDF. 


    Do you agree that 1-to-1 learning programs are a preferred method of learning?  Does your experience support the findings that learning outcomes increase with personalized technology instruction?
