This DVD will demonstrate effective uses of technology for K-12 classrooms that will help American students thrive in the connected world. Schools must teach students about digital citizenship, accountability and appropriate Internet use, collaboration, evaluating sources, tech tools, and knowledge creation. This DVD highlights innovations that any teacher can integrate into classroom life. The hardware and applications will change, but the principles will remain true. It’s not all about the technology—it’s about the learning.

The rate of technological development is exponential; it keeps speeding up. The more we speed up communication and access, the more we interact with people all over the world. This is a two-edged sword, fostering collaboration and increasing competition. Businesses and services are no longer limited by geographic boundaries. The whole world is connected in real-time. To prepare students for globalization, schools must change their environments and strategies, and engage the digital world students live in every day. We need to do new things in new ways. Our students need new skills and capabilities. We have to learn to live and thrive in this world in order to prepare our students for active citizenship, satisfactory work lives, and life-long learning.

  1. Technology Specialists: to help train teachers
  2. Teachers: to integrate applications into the curriculum
