I’m interested in using technology in my classroom, where is a good place to start?

The new Illinois Learning Standards emphasizes the use of integrated technology with the intent of enhancing academic targets and goals. The modern educator empowers students with key 21st-century skills that prepare students for post-secondary life. The first step in integrating technology is to first envision how your featured project will address NILS and curriculum objectives. Next, collaborate with your colleagues (or DCL’s) on establishing an action plan, and implementation, for success. Finally, seek out appropriate resources to connect project objectives with NILS and curriculum targets.
