Product Description

The push for higher educational standards and greater accountability has increased the demand for better information on the progress of schools and their students. Yet few schools and districts have the technological infrastructure to gather useful and credible data. This timely volume explores the ways in which educators can use technology to improve academic environments, school operations, and learning outcomes.
From the classroom to the school district, Information Technology for Schools presents successful approaches to using technology to serve different educational priorities. The contributing authors discuss the challenge of planning integrated information systems, establishing benchmarks to measure overall progress, and harnessing technology to improve curriculum and teaching practice. They highlight practical questions for educational stakeholders and provide sound advice on building effective information technology systems.
