Technology in Education
State Director of Career, Technical, and Adult Education, Utah State Office of Education
The use of digital technology and social media are essential to every classroom in America. In Utah we want to provide students with the best possible education and give them the tools they need to thrive in the workplace and in life. Our short-term goal is to have every school equipped with open access to digital technology and social media. This will take some time, but changes are being made to provide schools will the digital tools students need to successfully work on school projects while at school, using digital technology and the Internet. “Most of Utah’s public school students are ‘digital natives.’ That’s why we are currently crafting a statewide education technology initiative to ensure all Utah high school graduates are prepared with the skills they’ll need to succeed in this new and evolving digital landscape,” says Superintendent Larry Shumway.
Watch how iPods and iPads were used at Viewmont Elementary and Kearns High School this year.
