This course will introduce you to the
fundamentals of developing a strategic plan to integrate technology into your school in a
thoughtful and sustainable way. Throughout the course, you’ll have the opportunity to define your
technology goals, plan for curriculum and assessment, explore models for professional learning,
and examine sample technology plans as you outline a plan that is aligned to your vision for
student success.

As a leader for change, your role is to plan for student success, from adopting curriculum to
choosing technology, all while maintaining sustainable program funding and constantly evaluating
program success.
Like any journey, you will need a roadmap. The Technology Integration Plan is a key component to
bringing technology into your school to impact teaching and learning. At the highest level, it serves
to communicate your vision and identify the goals that will get you there. It also defines “action
areas” for guiding your school’s technology implementation and establishes stakeholder roles to
ensure that your leadership team is aligned to your vision.
While Technology Integration Plans can vary, some fundamental components are most common:
•     Vision (What you hope to    accomplish)
•     Information Communications   Technology (ICT)                       (Technology hardware, software, and
•    Curriculum and Assessment (Teaching strategies and the     learning environment)
•     Professional Learning (How technology integration will be       sustained through teacher training)
•     Measurable action items
•     Success measures
•     Implementation timelines
•     Budget

Throughout the course, you will learn about each of these components in more depth. You will
also apply your learning through hands-on activities designed to inform and designed to inform
and shape your technology plan shape your technology plan. After you complete the course
and return to your school, you will work with your community stakeholders to write a Technology
Integration Plan using the template introduced in this course to guide your process
