Technology Vision Statement

As a teacher, I must teach what is current and applicable to my students, as well as material they can carry with them throughout their lives. Technology supported education is the future for education, and I believe I must introduce my students to, what some studies call, the most efficient way to learn. In a study conducted by KIPP Academy in Houston, Texas, students in classrooms with a greater understanding and use of technology such as iPads in their studies had a 49% increase in passing math scores. Other studies show that students prefer using technology for the simplicity of it making learning more fun and accommodating. While there are many reasons to implement technology in current teaching strategies, the overall goal is to make learning something students want to do. I feel that technology brings schools one step closer to achieving that.
