National School Boards Foundation Institute for the Transfer of Technology to Education. "Why Technology?"

"Our schools thrive on information. In the ever-changing world filled with new technology, our teachers and students require the right information, from the right sources, today. Having direct access to industry information gives the competitive edge needed to succeed. Student performance can be improved when the enhancement of teaching and learning using technology is adopted as the norm. This section on Why Technology? will lead you to a new understanding for how technology can impact your district, the schools, and the many lives united within your community."

The material is based on upon work carried out through a National Science Foundation project.
