Abstract

Even though schools are currently not using the technology that they have in their curricula, it is never too late to begin the integration process. Schools must include the Iowa Communications Network (ICN) in their technology plans. Schools must connect to use the resources that each has to complement the curricula of one another. They must consider airing college classes for high school seniors, and they must begin finding ways to bring staff development hours to their teachers via the ICN.

Another objective in the technology plan must be training all teachers to operate the equipment in the ICN classrooms and teaching them how to become "tele-teachers." If schools are to effectively prepare graduates for college and the work force, technology must be integrated into curriculums and students must be allowed to use technology to learn, reason, think critically, make decisions, and solve problems.
