Part A:  Understrating a framework for learning with technology


1.  The technology supports a fundamental literacy that the school believes in

2.  The technology adds value to the learning process | it takes learning to a place that could not be achieved unless the technology had been included.

3.  The use of technology is framed within a sound instructional pedagogy.

4.  There is assessment data that enables the evaluation of the learning, and of the application of technology, if possible.


Within the context of this framework, it is my belief that the following skills must be developed in students.
