Schools are currently struggling to use cutting-edge technology resources to meet instructional needs while also providing an appropriate and safe environment for students and staff members. Educators at every level need a single, comprehensive, and effectively-written resource to guide them as they work with students to meet learning needs using technology and the internet. This book is written for school and district leaders, school technology teams, and technology coordinators. It defines the components of a schoolÆs technology system, explains the legal aspects and potential problems that may arise, and offers concrete strategies for the successful development, implementation, and maintenance of an effective school technology policy. This book will provide leadership ideas to help you create a community of learning through technology, instead of an ôelectronic lockdownö where students and staff members feel restricted.
