Getting It Right provides a roadmap for transforming schools to align technology with your teaching and learning goals-to ensure that your students are prepared with the necessary skills to be successful. With this in mind, authors and educators Ian Jukes, Randolph MacLEAN, and Dr. Matt McClure offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help you and your school move forward with implementing and assessing your own educational technology initiatives. This book is designed to help teachers, educational leaders, and decision makers wade through the complexities of technology planning.

It will show how, with proper planning, you can address Common Core, state, or provincial standards and improve student test scores. You'll also learn the best ways to foster relevant staff development and provide measurable accountability for expenditures. Most importantly, Getting It Right will help you to ensure that learners are effectively prepared with the skills and knowledge they will need to cope with the new realities of the 21st century.
